“What Do You Hunger 4”

Last week my studio popped up at The Community Food Bank.  The project was designed with multiple objectives.  Create an original piece of Art which captures a snap shot and tells a story of those in our community who require assistance to fill their pantries.  Blur the lines between giver and receiver by asking the receiver to give their creativity into a project which will then produce income to support the organization which is giving to the receiver (Who’s On 2nd). Create a conversation with the clients inspiring them to connect with their resources by creating a meaningful experience which the client may choose to build on, and or,  have a super fun story to tell about their trip to the Food Bank!   

And finally to sell the project to a buyer who desires to be apart of this story and wants a truly unique piece of art collaborated by a group of strangers who crossed paths in one moment in time drawn together with one common factor…Hunger.

I feel so lucky to have met and heard so many amazing stories from people I may have never crossed paths.  I  painted with 3 year olds, 80 year olds, sick, healthy, working, without work, homeless and blessed to have a home.  They all inspired me as I was blown away by the joy and friendship they extended to me.  They played with paint with me, some sang, some rapped and we laughed.  I love the piece which started as the Campbell’s Soup Can (inspired by Warhol) which  has taken on a life of itself and expresses the joy I found within our community where I least expected it to thrive.  

I’m back in my bricks and mortar studio putting on the final touches and looking forward to revealing “What Do You Hunger 4” IMG_7967
