For 21 years, the Stewpot Art Program has been providing empowerment to homeless or at-risk people by exposing them to art.
On Sunday, artwork by the artists in the program will be on display to the public from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library at 1515 Young St. in downtown Dallas. The show will run through Jan. 24.
The Dallas Morning News reported that the program serves roughly 30 people, with 22 of them being “really active.”
The program was begun by Dallas artist Pamela Nelson, who was succeeded 11 years ago by Cynthia Brannum.
The Stewpot is a Dallas-based service organization that helps the homeless.
Admission to Sunday’s opening is free, and 90 percent of the proceeds from sales of the artwork with go to the Stewpot Art Program, the Morning News reported.
