Art with Heart Walk - September 5, 2013

Head out tonight to First Thursday and participate in the 2nd Annual Art with Heart Walk.

 

The Art with Heart Walk is a collaborative initiative hosted by the PDX Development Roundtable to showcase the artwork of some of the most vulnerable in our community. The artists include people who are struggling with extreme poverty, homelessness, mental illness, and addiction. Art with Heart helps participants find peace of mind through artistic expression in times of transition, difficulty, and chronic hardships.

 

The event runs from 6 – 9pm, and you can start at any participating organization to pick up a map and your Art with Heart passport. Participating organizations include Transition Projects Inc. with p:ear & Pacific Northwest College of Art, Sisters of the Road Cafe, the Macdonald Center, Saint Andre Bessette Catholic Church, and Central City Concern with Street Roots.

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to view these incredible works, and the chance to support our community partners in the fight to end homelessness and poverty.
