Right in my hometown of Fayetteville, Arkansas, this project explores the effects of creative expression in the local homeless community. Created from scratch by a compassionate local artist, Art in the Park gathers the local homeless community under a roof in a park, provides them with a meal and the means to create. This ongoing project is focused on how it brings them together, makes them feel more human and provides them a space for healthy expression otherwise unavailable. Photos taken both digitally and on film.
