Host Our Exhibit

Host a Heart Gallery Exhibit

Do you have a local business, faith-based organization, church, community venue, or a place that would be perfect to host BEAR’s Heart Gallery of Greater Houston exhibit? We are always looking for exhibit locations in Harris County and the 12 surrounding counties! By hosting our traveling exhibit, you can help raise awareness for these children who are living in foster care, so many for extended periods of time, and are waiting for a permanent family with a life of stability and love.

If you are a business, place of worship or public venue within the greater Houston area and would like to open your doors to host our Heart Gallery exhibit, please fill out the form below. This is an incredibly impactful way to do something special for the most vulnerable members of our community, and to introduce them to prospective adoptive families.

What kinds of spaces can be used for an exhibit?

Heart Gallery exhibits can be customized for any space and have been everywhere from airports to small churches, salons to cafes, stores to corporate offices, doctor offices, one day events as well as festivals.

How long do exhibits last?

The traveling exhibit can be hosted for a variety of time frames, including one-day special events, or longer term exhibits.

What kinds of displays are used?

There are three kinds of displays: Easel Exhibit, Permanent Electronic Exhibit, and Virtual Electronic Exhibit.

  • Easel Exhibit~ Portraits of the children are on stretched canvas museum mounted 20×24″ portraits that can be easily hung on walls or displayed on easels. The portraits can also be placed around host locations on lightweight, space-efficient metal easels. We accommodate spaces with as little as one printed portrait to as many as 40. {Easel foot print approximately 70”high x 28”wide}
  • Permanent Electronic Exhibit~ These exhibits are commonly used in museums, hospital lobbies, and offices. They can include a variety of display items, but are generally built around a smart TV that electronically displays Heart Gallery Houston portraits of children with their name and age.  We are able to showcase the most children through this type of display. These exhibits work best utilizing a business’s existing monitor where we send them programming information electronically. Please contact us to learn more about this special option.
  • Virtual Electronic Exhibit~ Moving with the ‘virtual’ times! If your business is doing virtual events, meetings, or shows and would consider showing a slideshow of our Heart Gallery children and information, let us know. We can prepare the file for you and send the information electronically. Prefer to have a staff member present before or at the end of your event? We can make that happen too!
