They Still Draw Pictures is an exhibition of drawings made by children between the ages of six and
sixteen who have experienced war. Most of the drawings in the exhibition were made more than sixty
years ago, in Spain, by children who experienced the Spanish Civil War. All of their drawings have
white borders around them inside the black frames.
There are also drawings in the show made by children who have experienced war at other times and in
different countries around the world. Some of those other countries include Croatia, Czechoslovakia,
Albania, Poland, Israel, and Palestine. Their drawings have light gray borders around them inside the
black frames. The label next to each drawing explains what country it is from.
