POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
p:ear art arrives at the Fish office - June 6, 2013

Last week, we were pleased to welcome a new art installation from our friends at p:ear!

 

The installation, titled Art Out, features six original pieces by homeless or transitional youth who created their work at p:ear.

 

p:ear is a wonderful organization that builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives.

 

Last month, Nick was proud to serve as Honorary Chair of p:ear’s annual “p:earblossoms” fundraiser. The event marked the 11th year of p:ear’s work supporting homeless youth.

 

Timing for this wonderful art show is perfect - on Tuesday, Mayor Hales named Nick the new Commissioner-in-charge of Arts & Culture. 

 

To learn more about p:ear, and to purchase artwork, visit their website.

 

Be sure to stop by our office in June and July to see the unique and beautiful display.
