Project Hope: Meet the Artists Reception
Justus Sundermann Gallery
April 27, 2017
St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts recently celebrated the completion of a pilot initiative in collaboration with two Dallas-area visual media artists, to provide a safe and encouraging creative space for those who most need hope and inspiration in their lives.
Awarded a Special Support Grant from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, Project Hope provided a free open art studio to uniquely serve the homeless community. Local visual artists Cristina Estrella Riggs and Jessica L. Bell utilized dedicated space and the Sundermann Gallery to create, exhibit and sell original artwork by homeless Dallas citizens as a means to improve connections with their community and possibly generate income, at no cost to the participants.
These photos by Richard Hill were taken at the Meet the Artists Reception for the artists and the community.
