RIVERSIDE: Stories, art of homeless to be displayed at museum

Some of the people temporarily living in the Path of Life Ministries homeless shelter in Riverside thought they'd never do art again. At least that is what they told Riverside Art Museum ArtReach instructor Lydia Theon Ware i. She and fellow instructor Laura Ryan came in to the shelter several times from May 2010 to April 30, 2011 and guided the residents in creating paintings, poetry, journals and other projects.

The resulting artwork will be on display today at 6 p.m. at the museum during Riverside's monthly Arts Walk.

There have been numerous Art-Reach workshops over the course of that year at both the adult Path of Life shelter and the family one due to a $10,000 grant the museum received. The idea for Art Reach came to MJ Abraham, executive director of the Riverside Art Museum, when she visited one of the shelters last year and saw the stark, uninviting walls.

Abraham thought she could donate pieces of the museum's collections in order to brighten it up, but on second thought, giving the shelter's residents the opportunity to create their own art for display sounded more appealing.
