"It took me four years to paint like Raphael," said Picasso, "but a lifetime to paint like a child," and yet kids' artistic creativity is still shortchanged within our underfunded school system.

In her exhibition "Petri Dishes", emerging painter Jazzminh Moore has gathered together an international and intergenerational group of twenty artists showing playful work that pays homage to the creativity of children. At White Box's The Annex and the HiArt Gallery, two of New York's most innovative and politically engaged non-for profit spaces, these artists also provided tangible support for real children who cannot afford to explore their artistic potential. All of the profits from "Petri Dishes" are going to The TIME IN Children's Arts Initiative, which sponsors music and art classes for underprivileged kids.
