Art Brings Awareness About the Homeless Needing Shelter in New York City

post-image

Featured at the New York Historical Society Museum, there is a gallery of artworks that show different populations that make up New York City (NYC).

These plaster busts were created with the help of four resident women at a homeless shelter on Park Ave. The project by artists John Ahearne and Rigoberto Torres was created about the homeless crisis in NYC using the transformation of art through plaster models made from real persons.

The space around the busts is symbolic of the space and shelter that should be given to the homeless as part of the community.
