SYNERGY: WORD+VISUAL ART+PRINTMAKING

April 17, 2009

Albuquerque's Health Care for the Homeless received a National Endowment for the Arts grant to for a collaborative project between ArtStreet, the Harwood Art Center, and Tamarind Institute. Synergy: Word+Visual Art+Printmaking, began in September 2008 and culminated with two exhibits open to the public in March and April 2009. The Synergy project assembled a team of writers from Harwood Art Center, printers from Tamarind Institute, and artists from ArtStreet (a community art studio), who created poetry and works of art. Artists in the homeless community who lack access to the arts and artistic instruction were able to develop new skills and showcase them in  an exhibit at Tamarind Institute, April 17-24.
