One Hope United and Zeller Realty Group have partnered to bring INSIDE OUT, a global project transforming messages of personal identity into works of art, to Chicago. The art unveiling will take place Wednesday, April 1 at 5:30 p.m. at Pioneer Court, 401 N. Michigan Avenue (directly across from the Wrigley Building), and coincide with the start of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Art will feature black and white portrait photography by Satoki Nagata.

All portrait subjects share a commitment to a common vision, which is to create a world in which no child must endure the trauma of abuse. Photos for the INSIDE OUT art installation will be on display on Pioneer Court until April 24, 2015.

One Hope United is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit in Chicago. For the last 120 years their mission has been to save the world, one child at a time. The organization helps prevent child abuse by providing intensive support services to families at risk of abuse and neglect. OHU successfully lead the charge in having Mayor Rahm Emanuel proclaim April National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention in the city of Chicago. Last year, OHU served more than 4,500 families through their child abuse prevention programs, and 98 percent of families served had no reports of abuse.

On Saturday, April 18, OHU will host its Hope in Action gala at the Children's Museum in Navy Pier. Tickets are available at onehopeinaction.org with a special young professionals rate.
