About the Exhibition:
In honor of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (November 10-18, 2018), Street Sense Media artists and Art Enables resident artist Toni Lane, will exhibit their work in “Perspectives from the Sidewalk / Homelessness Awareness.” Highlighting the ways in which creative expression can empower change, the exhibition will feature photography, illustration, audio, and writing created by people impacted by homelessness. Art Enables resident artist, art educator, author, and activist Toni Lane will showcase her work alongside Street Sense Media’s artists. Lane has been observing, collecting, and creating art surrounding the issues of homelessness for decades but this exhibition will be the first retrospective of her body of work. Heavily influenced by interviews, research, and observations made during her time living in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., Lane feels driven to document “what is happening in America at this time and place in history.”
