Riverviews Artspace is partnering with Miriam’s House in this collaborative public art campaign, as they believe art should be used to create awareness and prompt change in the local community.
At Miriam’s House, we believe in the power of a home to provide safety, security, and a new start for those experiencing homelessness.
This public art campaign provided 25 local artists with the opportunity to design, paint, or decorate a small wooden doll house provided by Miriam’s House in honor of our work to move homeless individuals and families into homes. Artists were asked to respond to the prompt, “What does home mean to you?” The houses will debut at August’s First Friday opening on August 2nd.
Join us between 5:30pm and 8pm on August 2nd to view the houses, visit with the artists, and learn more about our work. Light bites provided. Cash bar.
The houses will be on display at Riverviews Artspace during the month of August and then on public display at 25 locations throughout the community in September. All of the dollhouses will be available for purchase at our Art Auction & Celebration event on October 18th at Riverviews Artspace. All proceeds will fund our programs to end homelessness.
The No Place Like Home art campaign is in celebration of Miriam’s House’s 25th anniversary and the 2500 lives changed through our work. For more information, visit www.miriamshouseprogram.org
