HEMI and Where the Wind Takes Us

Where the Wind Takes US by Hemi Mentors and Mentees and Cedric Michael Cox, Acrylic on canvas, 36 x 48 inches

For the past two years, the mentees and mentors of the Higher Education Mentoring Initiative (HEMI), have assisted me in the creation and execution of works of art that express our mission and vision.  Where the Wind Takes Us, our most recent work, celebrates the dreams and aspirations of the HEMI mentees and how education shapes our future.  The open book with the cityscape of Cincinnati is where the story starts. The bird and sun compass are symbols of time moving forward and the freedom of exploration. The map of the world reminds us that our journey can take us anywhere we want to go. The Higher Education Mentoring Initiative helps prepare foster youth for educational opportunities beyond high school. The HEMI Program recruits, trains, and supports mentors to establish positive long-term relationships with foster youth.

Where the Wind Takes Us will be auctioned off at the HEMI’s annual fundraiser, Run for the Roses! The Sixth Annual Run for the Roses: Kentucky Derby Fundraising Event is scheduled for 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., Saturday, May 7, 2016, but you can bid now. To bid on this work of art email me at cedricmichaelcox@cedricmichaelcox.com register for bidding. The winner will be announced at the Derby event on May 7th 2016, and the highest bidder will take the home this wonderful work of art!
