'Whispers' puts face on homelessness
FPU art faculty and McLane High School art students and teachers created the exhibit "Whispers from the Streets." The mixed media show was the culmination of two years of research and art production by over 300 student artists, teachers and local individuals associated with the homeless. Some 70 door panels became canvases for works depicting homelessness in Fresno through portraits, homeless architecture, personal items and writings. The exhibit was FPU's first contribution to ArtHop, a community art series. The reception was April 1 and the works were on display in the McDonald Hall foyer, the AIMS Hall foyer and the Steinert Campus Center lounge through April 21.
