The Sulzbacher Center will soon be benefiting from “A Palette of Hope.” Artists Against Homelessness is a project of The BUZZ Magazine, The Sulzbacher Center, The Cummer Museum, and Client Focused Media in which artists in all media can create awareness in the community by donating. their work on the subject of “homelessness.” The intent of A Palette of Hope is to raise awareness and bring the community closer together as well as help those in need. Qualified artists need apply and get ready to help others while getting some quality exposure.
The project’s purpose is to tell the stories of people affected by homelessness and raise awareness that people may become homeless for several different reasons, not just drug and alcohol addictions. Artwork must be submitted through mail or dropped off at The BUZZ Magazine offices by 3PM, October 21. All artists who participate may win awards including cash, gift cards for art supplies and the opportunity to have their art displayed in the Cummer Museum for a month.
Testimony from an artist: “I am donating this one. It’s my own personal story of being caught in the abyss with all of the other suffering butterflies yet I was able to break free and fly free. I am once again whole and I even have the image of God behind me. After only recently spending time in a shelter for abused women and in the hospital for 2 1/2 months, I have had the taste of homelessness and at times hopelessness. God always provides a way out, many times through people helping people acting as Gods privileged angels. I fully support this cause and hope that in a small way I can help raise awareness.”
The Sulzbacher Center provides the opportunity for homeless men, women and children to achieve a better life.
