Participants, youth, neighbors, artists, surrounding community, and advocates were welcomed to the storefront hub with food, music and art making. The storefront is the focal point, hub, a filter, an opportunity and place for conversation and storytelling about the complex issue of housing insecurity for the duration of the project.
Journey2home, a public art project that illuminates the challenges of housing insecurity for youth, opened to the public on December 13,2013. Over a hundred people attended! The installation included youth art work and artwork generated by artists- in- residence Ernel Martinez and Shira Walinsky in response to the youth, their artwork, statements and ideas.
