Nashville homeless artists to exhibit work internationally through Poverty and the Arts.
Poverty and the Arts (POVA), a Nashville-based nonprofit social enterprise, provides artists impacted by homelessness the studio space, supplies, and marketplace to create and sell their artwork. This fall, POVA artists will have the opportunity to exhibit and sell works in the United Kingdom including galleries in London, England and Glasgow, Scotland at The One Festival of Homeless Arts.
The One Festival of Homeless Arts brings together works of art in many forms, from theatre and film, sculpture and photography, as well as traditional visual art, all of which have been created by artists who are or have been homeless.
The opening in London will be held on World Homeless Day on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019. POVA artists will be celebrating the opening reception at their Studio and Gallery in Nashville, Tenn., on Oct. 10 from 12pm-2pm CST where they’ll have a video stream set up to join the London reception from the United States! The public is encouraged to attend.
