At the newest exhibit at the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana, homeless does not mean hopeless. Depicted in colored pencil entries by Shania Curl, the tagline perfectly encapsulates “Artistry Unhoused: Enlightenment From the Streets,” which features art from 15 homeless and formerly homeless artists from the Tri-State.
Running through Aug. 28 at the Art Council’s Bower-Suhreinrich Foundation Gallery at 212 Main St., more than 50 pieces were submitted commission free so that artists receive 100 percent of the profits when their work sells.
The exhibit is in partnership with the nonprofit Aurora, Inc., which focuses on preventing and ending homelessness.
Aurora and the Arts Council will host a public closing reception for the exhibit at 6 p.m. Aug. 28 at the gallery.
