Our Busy Lives
Description: Central City Hospitality House's Community Arts Program window features work created by community artists that denotes the busy lives of poor and homeless people living in the Tenderloin. The project's goal is to counter the myth that homeless and poor people are lazy and don't contribute to the great community. "Our Busy Lives" documents the important contributions of those struggling with poverty and homelessness.
Artist: Hospitality House’s Community Arts Program is the only free-of-charge fine arts studio and gallery space providing materials, professional instruction, and sales/exhibition support to poor and homeless Tenderloin artists and neighborhood residents. Founded in 1969, the program is pleased to be marking 40 years as an epicenter of urban and ‘outsider’ art. Through the Community Arts Program, Hospitality House endeavors to showcase the unique and powerful cultural contributions Tenderloin residents make to the greater community.
