Getting back on the boat: Homeless Awareness exhibit at Mall of America
About three months ago, I decided to shelter an artist, Felix Brown, who is homeless. I also connected him to Outsiders and Others, a Minneapolis based gallery, that has organized, what they believe is, the first curated exhibit of work by artists who have experienced homelessness. The show, Homeless Awareness, which is being held at The Mall of America, opens on Saturday, November 12th with a reception from 6-9 pm. And, Felix is profiled today in the Pioneer Press by Neil Munshi in a story titled Exhibit could open a door for homeless artists. Check it out!
