Oishei Children's Hospital 'Draw Off'

Inviting all children: Come create your own 'smiling face' self portrait
Be part of a beautiful community mosaic art installation being created for the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital located in the medical corridor in downtown Buffalo. As part of its capital campaign, The Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo Foundation has partnered with Faces of Buffalo Community Art Mosaics who will use thousands of selfportraits drawn by both patients and kids from our WNY community. LIKE the project on Facebook, spread the word and come enjoy this opportunity for kids to draw their face which will be included in this permanent mosaic centerpiece. All drawings will get scanned and emailed to parents to share on social media. Art supplies are provided. Join in!
