Our Community, Our Neighbors is a one-year creative challenge being undertaken by artist Laura Hunt to bring the humanity of those who have experienced homelessness to light. Everyone has a story, and Laura will make the proactive connection between her art and the community issue of living without a place to call home. Restarting in 2021, after the pandemic, Laura will begin her process of portraying 26 individuals, with 26 stories over 52 weeks. Portraits will then be on display for a month long gallery showing in February 2022. Join us as we embark on this important journey.
Portraits will be rendered in a contemporary style using mixed media on wood panels. Once the creation phase has been completed, the portraits will be gathered for a public exhibit, including a private reception for portrait volunteers and project supporters as honored guests. Please consider becoming a supporter of this project to bring to light the realities of those experiencing homelessness in our community. All portraits will be available for purchase at completion.
