Art at the Library

Memory Project

Portraits by Ames High School Art Students

Currently On Display in Ames Public Library's Vestibule

The Memory Project invites artists around the world to create portraits as special gifts for children facing challenges. The Memory Project has partnered with a charity for children in Cameroon. Ames High School art students created their portraits so that they can send a message of kindness, respect, and encouragement.

Ames High School art students worked on portraits of children in Cameroon. These AHS art students are sharing their artistic gifts of hope from an outer world. These portraits will be on display at the Ames Public Library throughout the month of January and February. They will be delivered to the children in Cameroon at the beginning of March.
