“In Search of My Son- Chris RITCHEY- Thanks
No1. - “In search of my son and in search of me”
No.2 “Toujours Moi – Always Me”
No.3 “Always me – Always Chris”
I have realized in my journey to give my son back his voice, and to take him back from those that hold who he was captive with their limited knowledge of “who was Christopher David RITCHEY”, that I had an ally.
Cleveland Institute of Art has unwittingly and unknowingly given me my son’s voice . It was they that taught him how to use his talent, to express himself, to reach out , to speak , as he has done for me in recent days. As I have found and reviewed his work, I have once again heard his voice.
To that end, I contacted Cleveland Institute of Art , Chris’ family ( read RITCHEY)( father, mother, sister, nana and uncle) will sponsor a scholarship to be given to a 4th year Communications and Design Student . A scholarship in Chris’ name to the student that shows , tenacity, diversity , and stands behind their work no matter how controversial.
It is our way of thanking those that helped form my son and have in fact helped give him back to us.
