What does HOME mean to YOU?
Join the Habitat Door Project - a unique collaborative project which will bring together local artists as part of the 2017 Hard Hats & High Heels Gala to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento ’s mission of creating a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to call home.
The Habitat for Humanity Doors Project is a new collaborative project that is part of the 2017 Hard Hats & High Heels Gala. The project brings together local artists to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s mission of creating a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to call home.
Chaired by celebrated artist William Ishmael with panel members Pamela Skinner (Skinner Howard Gallery Owner) and Michael Dunlavey (owner of Dunlavey Studios) – the unique #HabitatDoors project invites local artists to celebrate their talents while making a statement and bringing attention and support to the importance of affordable homeownership opportunities in our local community.
ABOUT THE DOORS PROJECT
This new and unique element to the Habitat Gala brings together interested, selected, socially-conscious local artists to create artwork on a recycled door (provided by the Habitat ReStore) in the theme of “what home means to you.”. Artwork can include, but was not limited to, painting, collage, recycled materials, and more. Creativity and inventiveness were encouraged.
The doors are currently on display for public viewing at ARTHOUSE on R throughout the month of April and are part of their Second Saturday event . They will be auctioned off on Friday, April 28th as part of the Gala and then will be in private collections.
All participating artists submitted an online Request For Proposal (RFP) and were approved by our judges panel in January. 7 finalists were chosen to participate: David Asch, Macee Burns, Sheldon Carpenter, Sondra Hersh, Kate Riley, Jennifer Tachera, and Kerri Warner for being selected as our finalists!
