Children of Challenge, Crisis, and Conflict

Photo via Swords into Plowshares Facebook
This compelling exhibit, created between 1985 and 1991, shows children who faced serious challenges, including famine and war. Lynn Baum created these drawings and paintings from life as he traveled to countries including Nicaragua, Northern Ireland, and Israel/Palestine. As Baum says, “I hoped by now to look back and know all is well, and my series is outdated. I cannot say that. The faces change, the landscapes change, but the effects of poverty, dehumanization, and war continue.” In addition to drawings from the original series, the Upstairs Gallery features new drawings of children who represent Detroit hope. Starts at 5 p.m.; 33 E. Adams Ave., Detroit; swordsintoplowsharesdetroit.org; 313-963-7575; free.
