ABOUT THE ART PROJECT
The Art Project, Houston is a therapeutic art and empowerment program of the Bread of Life, Inc. facilitating the recovery and discovery of the creative self for hungry, homeless and transitioning individuals in Houston, Texas. The idea to act upon this initiative was developed by Juanita Rasmus out of her desire to help people express their creativity and empowering them through artistic endeavors. The project concept emerged during her recovery from cancer. The project was launched in August 2010 with over 85 artisans consisting of clients from the Bread of Life emergency shelter, Temenos Place Apartment Residents (a transitional to permanent housing program), art patrons from the community and members of St. John’s Downtown. The Art Project, Houston seeks to empower our city’s homeless to become hope-filled artisans who will craft their own livelihood and create lives filled with new possibilities.
