Auspicious Arts began with a vision of bringing art projects to community service projects.
Auspicious Arts at CityHeART is the program where we complete the part of our mission to tell true stories about our city in order to raise awareness of various issues. We lead therapeutic art workshops with groups in the city (people in recovery, veterans, transitional youth, at-risk senior citizens, to name a few) and learn their stories along the way. We end each workshop series with a culminating art reception, where the work is displayed for the public and information about the issue at the root of the stories is shared. Guests are challenged to engage with the work and serve the issues at hand, whether its homelessness, mental health, human trafficking, addiction, PTSD, or any of the many struggles present in our community.
Your gift and commitment to this program will allow us to lead 12 workshop series in 2018, and host 12 informational art receptions — one per month. Please consider helping us with this endeavor!
Second Annual Safe Refuge Art Show at Hellada Gallery: Proud to Be Me
This show was the culmination of a ten week art workshop series we led for clients at Safe Refuge. This is the second year in a row we have had the privilege of working with the Safe Refuge team to do something wonderful and creative. Thank you to all who made this possible!
