Thursday, January 16, 2020
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
On display from January 16 - April 27, 2020 at the Annenberg Community Beach House Art Gallery will be an exhibit co-curated by photographer Jasmine Monet Davis, who was previously homeless in her own life, and graphic designer, Emma Thorne-Christy. The exhibit will feature the life of Arlene, a single mother of four kids (ages 3-17) and working nurse practitioner who lives in motel rooms across the San Fernando Valley, while trying to maintain some sense of routine and normalcy for her children. The exhibition will also feature self-exploratory works from young artists experiencing homelessness who are based at the Healing Arts Program at Safe Place for Youth in Venice. This evening will focus on a reception for the artists and community, as well as a panel discussion on homelessmness and how the public can help.
