SHOREVIEW COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
The Shoreview Human Rights Commission, Oak Hill Montessori Community School, and the Ramsey County Library used an SCF 2022 grant for A Peace of My Mind, a program that uses portraits and personal stories to bridge divides, encourage dialogue, and celebrate the differences between us all. An October 24-28 exhibit featured 54 portraits and personal stories from people of diverse backgrounds answering the question “What does peace mean to you?” This exhibit was split between the Shoreview Community Center and Ramsey County Library – Shoreview. There was also an Onsite Studio October 24 and 25 and a presentation by award-winning photographer and storyteller John Noltner on October 27.
YOU MADE THESE WONDERFUL PROGRAMS POSSIBLE! THANK YOU!

YOUR SUPPORT AT WORK IN THE COMMUNITY
Gallery 96 used an SCF 2022 grant to hold three free Plein Air painting classes. How does this benefit Shoreview residents you might ask? Research has shown that art reduces the creator's stress hormone cortisol and gives them an outlet to express their feelings and experiences. There are various ways society benefits from art. The arts represent a common bond of humanity that does not depend on words or education. The arts can bypass the intellect and impact people on a very deep level. Art helps us to become more socially aware, and to be more connected to the world around us.
