Perseverance with Dignity: Impressions of Homelessness and Hunger

This exhibit is a result of an invitation to local artists to exhibit works that, through visual response and reflection, give hunger and homelessness an identity beyond the statistics, embracing the hungry and homeless not as faceless numbers but as members of our community who we know and care about. By turning compassion into artistic action, we hope to raise consciousness of humanity’s shared purpose. We envisioned an exhibition to activate reflection, questioning, understanding and even action by highlighting the various interpretations of being hungry and/or homeless. We are proud of the result and to present the artwork of the following artists:

Katherine Abbott
Alan deCourcy
Lee Baker DeVore
Sondra Karipides
