Westphal Welcomes Artists for All Seasons
October 24, 2016
The Project HOME Art Program empowers homeless men, women, and low-income families to express their personal journeys through art-making. With ongoing partnerships between Project HOME and Drexel, Westphal will host its third Artists for All Seasons exhibition featuring the works of select Project HOME artists. The exhibit will on display from October 27 through November 9 in the URBN Center Lobby.
In addition to the exhibition, Project HOME has partnered with our Design & Merchandising program in a number of ways over the years that have engaged students in visual merchandising projects related to Project HOME’s social enterprises. The D&M Shop will be open during the reception selling bespoke goods including a selection of products such as candles, cranberry sauce and stationery from Project HOME artists.
Also, a special thanks to Graphic Design student Marianne Issa El-Khoury, who designed the beautiful invitation artwork for Artists for All Seasons.
The Project HOME art program offers a wide variety of year-round workshops that engage participants with the transformative power of art to communicate experiences, share perspectives and build skills in addition to giving artists the opportunity to exhibit and sell work. Artists for All Seasons 2016 features the work of Mary Crawford, Kevin Pierce, James Webster Jr., and Eddie Covert.
The art program and social enterprises are only part of the many services that the non-profit Project HOME provides to formally homeless families and individuals, including subsidized housing programs, healthcare and recovery services, teen and youth programs, job readiness workshops, adult literacy and GED classes, and access to resources that help local residents improve their lives, gain employment and pursue higher education.
