Martin Horn bids on “Home” to help end homelessness

Posted on Oct 26, 2015 in Community | No Comments

Martin Horn is currently showcasing “Home,” an art piece by Richmond artist, Matt Lively, which was recently won at auction to benefit Virginia Supportive Housing and Art On Wheels. Until it can be installed in a more permanent location, “Home” can be viewed in the Martin Horn lobby and is open to the public. Please stop by, view the art and show your support!

The piece is one of 40 unique works of art by Richmond artists for an interactive exhibit, which invites the public on a quest to find all forty Art Doors. Art Doors were installed throughout the City of Richmond, from public parks, museums, historic sites, and local landmarks during the summer months. Find Art Doors culminated in an auction on October 24 to support the two local non-profits that created it: Virginia Supportive Housing and Art on Wheels.

We are happy to support the missions of local non-profits! Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH) helps homeless individuals reclaim their lives with affordable housing and supportive services to end homelessness. Art On Wheels (AOW) brings the arts directly to older adults, veterans, and people living with disabilities or illness.
