Kathryn Campbell Collection (1667) Finding Aid

Item Number: 16670000000
 Collection

Scope and Contents

Circa 1960s-1970s drawings and paintings created by Vietnamese children, ranging in ages 6-10, in watercolor, crayon, pen, and other media, submitted to a Saigon television station's annual art contest sponsored by Mr. Le Van Khoa with The Gioi Cua Tre Em! (World of Children!) television program. Most of the artworks have a small photograph of the child artist attached to them. The images depict festivals, legends, fairytales, heroes, animals, landscapes, villages, familial love, the devastation and trauma of war, as well as western literature and pop culture. The drawings and paintings were donated to The Committee of Responsibility to raise funds for medical aid to children injured in the Vietnam War. Three of the child artists were receiving treatment in Boston hospitals at the time the artworks were exhibited. The Committee used the pictures at a fund raiser in Long Island. These artworks have been exhibited in St. Louis, Houston, Boston, and other cities.
