The Art of Remembrance
Capturing Lost Lives on Canvas.
“With Every Brush Stroke” Rizpah Volunteer Artists have been capturing the images of loved ones lost to violence on canvas, as a means of helping families to memorialize and honor, those lives tragically ended. These portraitures are treasured gifts to children & families and have been, a source of healing for so many Rizpah Families. Rizpah Artists contribute 1 or more portraits per year, depending on their availability and to date, have helped to complete over 100 portraitures for Rizpah families. If you have lost a loved one to violence, and would like a portraiture please submit request below.
Faces Not Forgotten Partnership Rizpah Network collaborates with Faces Not Forgotten, a group of artists who paint portraits of children under the age of 20, who have been lost to gun violence. The families receive the original portrait and a copy is used to create FNF quilts that are exhibited nationally to raise awareness of this horrific loss.
The Healing Art of Music
The Art of Giving Voice to the Soul
“Nothing Heals the Soul, like Good Music.”Rizpah “gives voice to the soul, “by hosting & attending events, that utilize music, as a healing tool to both inspire and uplift. Rizpah families have attended Night Out’s with the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Irish Conductor, Peter Shannon and continue to explore avenues that provide both good music & a therapeutic release for our families.
The Healing Art of Generosity
The Art of Sharing & Caring
Holidays are the hardest time to navigate for children/families experiencing any loss, but traumatic loss adds an extra weight, that often sinks the joys of the season.
Each year Rizpah host, Rizpah around the Christmas Tree to share, show love, and put a smile, on the faces of children who have lost a parent(s) to violence. Just seeing, their faces “light up,” with joy, makes what we do worth it! Our sponsors continue to help make this event special for Rizpah Families, and we’d love for you, to join us as well.
