This compelling exhibit, created between 1985 and 1991, powerfully shows children who faced serious challenges, including famine and war. These drawings and paintings were done from life as Lin Baum traveled to several 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 As Baum says, “I hoped by now to look back and know all is well, and my series is outdated.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.
