CAMBA homeless shelter residents will participate in an art exhibition entitled
“Studio Art Redefined: Self Expression without Boundaries”. A collection of art
that tells their story in painting, drawing, sculpture, collage, printmaking and
literature will be on display June 11-August 11 at the Prospect Park YMCA, 357
Ninth Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215, 7th Floor Atrium. The presentation is in
conjunction with Community House H.D.F.C.
The exhibition will illuminate the “force of art and literature in empowering
shelter residents to realize their full potential.” CAMBA’s dedicated art
therapists and recreation staff help men and women achieve self esteem and
readiness skills they so desperately need when transitioning into permanent
supportive housing and job situations.
Curators for the exhibition are Candace Bowen, Jessica Fox, and Marianne
Hughes, Creative Arts Therapists and Recreation Coordinators at CAMBA and Ebony
Lewis, Community House H.D.F.C. The opening reception will be held on Thursday
June 11 6-9 pm. CAMBA’s Mary-Beth Shine is coordinating the event.
CAMBA Acknowledges Bark Frameworks LLC, Hirsch & Associates, Jerry’s
