Awareness Wednesday 03/16/22 - Our Community. Our Neighbors.
Our Community, Our Neighbors is a creative challenge undertaken by artist Laura Hunt to bring the humanity of those who have experienced homelessness to light. Everyone has a story, and Laura makes the proactive connection between her art and the community issue of living without a place to call home. Restarting in 2021, after the pandemic, Laura began her process of portraying 26 individuals, with 26 stories over 52 weeks. Portraits are rendered in a contemporary style using mixed media on wood panels. The show runs until April 23rd at the Bernice Coulter Templeton Gallery at Texas Wesleyan University. All proceeds benefit Tarrant County Homeless Coalition in their mission to lead the community solution to homelessness in greater Tarrant and Parker counties by serving as a catalyst for community transformation.
