Friends of BARC board members participated in a well-attended fundraising event on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at the Jack Meier Art Gallery in Houston. Photographer (and Harris County Juvenile District Court Judge) Michael Schneider, along with Bill Daniel, opened their two-week exhibit of 20th Century 8 x 10 film negatives of movie and television stars enlarged as 20 x 24 silver gelatin fiber prints, the first of its kind in any exhibit.

All proceeds from the sale of the prints goes to Friends of BARC during the exhibit, which raised over $3000 on opening night.

Guests enjoyed food and wine, and were treated to an explanation of how the prints were created by Judge Schneider.
Recognizing that BARC will become overwhelmed with animals as a result of Hurricane Harvey, Judge Schneider reached out to Friends of BARC (again!) as the fundraising partner for this wonderful exhibit.
