Drawn to Home
Drawn to Home In-Person
Art exhibit featuring the work of local comic artists and the stories of individuals experiencing homelessness. These works are featured in a comic book of the same name which will be Gumberg's November 2022 Social Justice Reading Club reading selection.
Drawn to Home is focused on the national shortage of affordable housing and the crisis of homelessness facing many of our major cities. Art has a unique power to open up dialogue that can energize people to take action and to make their voices heard to support others who struggle with housing instability.
This exhibit is in memory of the project’s founder, Jay Poliziani, who described his vision to open the dialogue about homelessness on a wider level saying: “We have seen that people are open to conversations about tough topics like homelessness when presented in a non-confrontational or judgmental way. When people can start the conversation organically around a work of art, they feel at ease. Change can only come if conversations feel comfortable.”
