Challange: Get an art exibit of homeless art going in your city. –T.J.
I never expected my experience working in a homeless shelter this Christmas to be of such visual beauty. Where on earth, in a cold city and a converted secondary school –bleak as a school building can be, would I find someone with the inspiration to ‘create’? Rightly or wrongly the argument has often been made, that art doesn’t come into a society until its members taste some amount of comfort and freedom- that when one’s fight is for their very survival, they find no time nor place for producing art. But what of individuals who know of this ‘comfortable’ society, but find themselves excluded from every benefit of it? Is this the experience that encouraged our homeless guests to produce art so engaging yet so humble?
