Harrison, Faculty and Staff for your continuous support to ISHR initiatives.The opening of the exhibition of “Children of the Modern Family Exhibit” by Dr. Wilma Bulkin Siegel, M.D., at the Library Art Spaces was a success. CHILDREN OF THE MODERN FAMILY: "Our society of the Western World is changing rapidly and so too families are changing. With change there is always a question of new and suspicion- often labels of negativity. It is my obsession in my work to accept people for who they are not who I wish them to be. In short it is about “antibigotry” i.e. about tolerance and respect. The modern family is LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender), single male parent who has a child through a surrogate, a single female artificially inseminated, and the interracial family. I feel that the offspring of this “Modern Family” are like” little old souls”. They are empathetic to others. I feel the parents have been through bigotry in our society and wish for and teach their children to not have bigotry within themselves. It is about mutual respect for the human rights of others. I wish to paint the children to tell their story and show their place in society in making a pathway for the future in our society to have empathy towards others and self respect for themselves". WILMA BULKIN SIEGEL,M.D. Impact: 60 people during the unveiling.
