Just before Christmas, Bill Schwarz generously donated a 4′ x 5′ oil painting to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton to enhance and enliven its “games” room.
Bill did so because he firmly believes that the only way to an end is to start at the beginning. To give young people the opportunity to live with art in their everyday surroundings not only helps them today, but gives them an appreciation for art tomorrow.
The kids made comments like: “Wow!” “Awesome!” “Look at the colours!” Marlena Sokolowska, Early Years Coordinator: “Having the artwork here speaks volumes that it should be accessible to all people.”
Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017 to all . . . . . young and old!
