The Liberty City Family Matters Portrait Series showcase individuals and family that are staples of the community throughout the Model City Area. The faces of the children depicted in these portraits by renowned artist C.J. Latimore, are the faces of our future. They represent dreams and hope; intelligence and determination; inner peace and parental guidance; thoughtfulness and teamwork, and fierce self-esteem. These inspiring artworks bring to life a positive environment where families can reflect on their existence as a community, their beliefs and their values.
