To commemorate this special anniversary and Atlanta’s position as a gateway to the globe, CARE has brought art created by schoolgirls across four continents to Mason Murer Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta. The “Through the Eyes of a Girl” exhibit opens today, on the second annual International Day of the Girl, and features 100 works by schoolgirls who, with CARE’s help, have overcome long odds to pursue their educations. The opening reception and celebration of this unique art collection will include global cuisine, drinks and music. Tickets are $50 and available atwww.care.org/art.Read More
