Call for Artist – Button Day

The Childern’s Center –

An artful approach to unbuttoning the Center’s past

        One hundred years ago this summer, Mattie Mallory, founder of The Children’s Center, enjoyed success through an intriguing fundraiser for children at The Oklahoma Orphanage, which eventually became the Center. Called “Button Day,” Mattie and a dedicated band of women sold pin-back buttons bearing the picture of a baby throughout the business sections of the city.  The event created quite a bustle and ultimately raised $400. That’s $9,300 in today’s dollars!
      The Children’s Center will reprise “Button Day” on by hosting a juried art exhibition showcasing the work of local artists. The button-themed artwork, along with other buttons made by children, will be sold during a family-friendly fundraiser to include food, entertainment, and even a button making booth. Admission is a $5 dollar commemorative button. For more information about this fastenating event, please contact Amy Coldren, special events coordinator at (405) 470-2284  (405) 470-2284 or // <![CDATA[
