My studio is located at 50 South Second Street. I am located in a very challenged economically community. Today Craig and his intern Meagan installed large poster photos and stories from the families and connections who have made their life living against touch conditions. If you are able...you might want to come down and check these intimate stories out. Generations united to survive and thrive when the economy has been less than favorable. I know many of the families and their children and grandchildren...through my three years with free Art experiences on Family night on Wednesday. The need is still there but with the assistance of Denison, The Works and the YES club...many of these children have found safe, secure environment to explore and discover Art, History and Technology. I have been very honored to have had such an intimate relationship with the families living in South Newark. I have made heart felt connections and hopefully contributions to some of these residents and their experiences creating ART.
I wish you could have seen her beautiful smile!
We have had a busy day...and made another car load delivery of my art materials to my sewing room. Simple gifts ...thank you Miss Morgan!
Imagine and Live in Peace,
