Teen mothers create mosaics

Teen mothers, many of them homeless, tell their stories through artwork in an exhibition at DalTile Tile and Stone Gallery, 316 W. Hubbard, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 13.

Students at Simpson Academy for Young Women, a CPS school for pregnant and parenting girls, and residents of the Night Ministries youth shelters created intricately detailed, life-size silhouettes with mosaic collages of mixed media that express tell each individual’s story and explore her strengths, hopes and struggles.

They worked with Real Eyes Moms, a collaboration of the Alternatives, Inc., the Night Ministry, and the Green Star Movement, a group which works with young people in schools and community centers on murals that celebrate diversity and foster teamwork and creativity.
