|About The Heart Gallery
Colorado is proud to have the opportunity to unite with Diane Granito, Heart Gallery Founder in her vision to " Picture a family for every child".
Colorado is among forty-two States across the nation to have an active Heart Gallery. Our first effort in 2005 was very successful; many valuable and productive partnerships were developed to find forever families for fifteen children.
This nationally renowned, annual exhibit features photographs of
the children in Colorado who have been waiting the longest for an
adoptive family. The faces of the children featured in the Colorado
Heart Gallery tell incredibly compelling and highly emotional stories.
Utilizing the skills of some of Colorado 's most talented volunteer
photographers, the images in the Heart Gallery flawlessly capture
the essence of each child. With only a brief moment of opportunity,
these consummate artists use their expertise to eloquently convey
the children's individuality and beauty.
The effects of the child's journey through the foster care system are masterfully relayed in each photo. The children silently tell their story through the nuances of their posture, the angle of their smiles, and the depth of their eyes. The portraits reach beyond their frames, striking the heart of the audience, conveying the hope and desire that all the children have to find their "forever family."
