Oakland Mall Sees Through The Eyes of a Child

During the month of July, Oakland Mall will host Through the Eyes of a Child, a traveling photographic exhibition. It benefits Coalition On Temporary Shelter (COTS), a non-profit that provides important resources for Detroit’s homeless population. To put the exhibition together, Monte Nagler, renowned fine art photographer, conducted a photography class for youth in COTS programs and encouraged them to capture their world as they see it. The children also wrote about their inspirations. Thirty pieces of art resulting from the program have been gathered into the exhibition, which will be presented in the center’s in the Giggle Gang Clubhouse.

Rather than just present the exhibition, the center is giving its Giggle Gang children’s club a chance to participate. The Giggle Gang will be donating proceeds from one of its events to the project. It will also hold a photography contest for its members. Oakland Mall is asking Giggle Gang members to take their own photographs of their world and submit them for a chance to win an overnight stay at the Sterling Inn water park. The contest will cost $1 to enter and the proceeds will all go to benefit the children at COTS. Once the Through the Eyes of a Child exhibit has moved on, the Giggle Gang’s photos will be displayed in the clubhouse.

“Oakland Mall takes community involvement seriously. We are extremely proud of our philanthropies and our popular kids club. So when we have the opportunity to bring them together everyone benefits,” said David Neuman, General Manager of Oakland Mall.
