United Way of King County | Resource Exchang  2014

Date: April 2014

 

Description: Collaborative art installation 

 

This installation created a platform for event volunteers, sponsors and those being served that day to come together collectively to paint and discuss the importance of community and connection between the homed and unhomed. As people were painting they were also reflecting on question prompts such as: "My biggest dream...Best thing about today is...I feel loved when...?"

Many people described the complexities and challenges they face while living on the street but they also described all of the beauty and love they see and feel in the world. 

This exhibition allowed people the time and space to relax, connect and express their creative selves.
