Reach for Success Exhibit

The Art of SEEing classes are presented weekly by Carmen Lund to the youth of Vieques who are members of the the Reach for Success Club. The club was founded by Carmen Portella as a way to support underserved youth on the island. The youth is made up of individuals who desire to move forward and attain the advantages of higher education and vocational training for themselves and their families.

In February, 2017 Reach for Success held its first annual art exhibit at the Vieques Cultural Center (the old Vieques highschool) . The bold colorful work produced by the participants in this program was hung in this historic and beautiful location in the center of the town. The community came out in overwhelming support of the youth. It was an awesome event. 40 student paintings were sold and later Mama Mia restaurant  generously agreed to donate a wall to permanently exchibit the student’s art work.
