There were three remarkable winners of the Diversity Art Showcase at this year’s AFP International Conference. Laura, Oscar and Tali’s work depicts how they view philanthropy. The winners, all from Art with a Heart and Lakeland Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore, explored the ideas of diversity and philanthropy through mixed media creations. Local artists judged the student’s artwork to award a first, second, and third place. The winning pieces were displayed in the Diversity Youth Art Showcase during AFP’s March 2015 International Fundraising Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. The students were recognized throughout the conference, including at the opening plenary with 3,500 conference attendees in the audience.
