This spring St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts launched a new 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. Recently awarded a Special Support Grant from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, this pilot project has offered a free open art studio to uniquely serve the homeless community.
Local visual artists Cristina Estrella Riggs and Jessica L. Bell have utilized dedicated space and the Sundermann Gallery to create, exhibit and offer for sale 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. The artwork will be displayed through May 19.
You are cordially invited!
