Special Events

Memory Project: Syria


A new art exhibit featuring the faces of Syrian refugee children is now on display at the Sacramento Children's Museum! Memory Project: Syria showcases portraits of Syrian children living in a refugee camp on the border of Syria and Jordan. The portraits were created by American high school art students, and these paintings and drawings were given to the Syrian children as gifts. Replicas of these portraits are on display to promote international friendship and kindness.
