Maryhurst is the oldest child welfare agency in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Founded in 1843, it serves as a home for abused and neglected children. Through an atmosphere of structure and love, Maryhurst provides healing and hope to those who have nowhere else to go. Maryhurst collaborates with the Speed Art Museum’s Wall Together program to produce Color Me Justice. The exhibition showcased paintings chronicling the teens’ journeys. The project integrated education and art therapy and used artistic styles such as Impressionism, Surrealism and Cubism to help the students give voice to their personal narratives as well as the universal issues faced by all teenagers.
