Shelter: Crafting a Safe Home

How does lack of safety and security affect our psyche and ability to live and flourish? In this exhibition, fourteen contemporary artists tackle the public issue of human displacement and housing insecurity. This exhibition features their responses to issues of shelter—global and local, public and private. Shelter is a socially engaged art experience with the aim to create awareness and open dialogue around an urgent social issue. The exhibition will validate the human experience by showcasing art infused with personal stories and perspectives, and will demonstrate that art-making is a vehicle for open communication, healing, and compassion.

This Exhibition was organized by Contemporary Craft, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
