Homeless Art

Nurturing creativity at the Delonis Center

From the November, 2017 issue

In 2015, members of the Ann Arbor Women Artists installed their work in one of the temporary galleries in Liberty Plaza for POP-X, an outdoor exhibition. But member Mary Murphy began to feel awkward. The homeless people who gather there, she recalls, responded with "a mix of curiosity and displeasure."

"By and large, everyone loved the exhibit," she recalls. "But for me, it was an awakening ... I couldn't keep looking away" from the park's denizens.
