"No Room at the Inn": International Samaritan and Chazz Miller.

  community member   < less Baby Jesus made out of recylced newspaper

Chazz Miller's new art installation at 803 N. Main Street 1 mile north of Michigan Stadium.
Chazz Miller's new installation touches on Jesus' roots as a peasant. Just as He was born into poverty millions are still impoverished and without shelter today. This art installation was commissioned by International Samaritan, a global humanitarian group based in Ann Arbor, to help break the cycle. Chazz is an internationally known street artist from Detroit whose work takes a satirical view of social, political and cultural issues. Chazz deconstructs the psychology of subliminal suggestion, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and religion, that make up our culture.
Exhibit runs Dec 4th - Jan 5th. Grand opening on 12/4th 6-9pm.
To draw parallels between the humble conditions Jesus was born into and the poverty still plaguing us today, the exhibit takes visitors on a journey beginning at the manger where Jesus was born, then on through replicas of the dirt-floor shacks people live in today.
International Samaritan. Free. 2023690699. carissa@tricompr.com www.intsam.org

"But even that doesn't really do justice to their sound, as there are bits of New Orleans, Roma, backwoods blues and a whole lot more in their melting pot." With guitarist Andrew Brown, violinist/mandolinist Brandon Worder-Smith, bassist Eric O'Daly, and percussionist/washboard player Vince Russo
