Want to experience some pretty cool art while making a difference in our community? On Friday, nearly 40 artists who are experiencing homelessness will display their work in an art show in OKC titled the “Home and Heart Community Art Show.” The show will take place at the Homeless Alliance from noon to 8 p.m. The featured artists participate in “fresh stART,” a program designed to provide people experiencing homelessness in Oklahoma City with a supportive environment for creating art.
In addition to providing a potential source of income, open studio art programs enable people experiencing homelessness to express themselves creatively, manage emotional issues, develop social skills through positive interaction with a peer group, and develop a greater sense of dignity and skills transferable to employment.
