Community-created mural at United Caring Shelter, Evansville, Indiana 2014-2015

Location:  Evansville, IN
United States
Project Description: 

Community-created mural at a homeless shelter, designed and painted by shelter guests.  I solicited ideas from them over the course of about eight months, provided materials, and they created the mural themselves.  The purpose of the mural was to showcase the many talents of those who came through the shelter during 2014-2015, make them feel empowered and valued as individuals as well as an important, integral part of the shelter and larger community, as well as build awareness the homeless are just like us, and have many gifts to share.
