Join YLS and Light Gallery + Studio for this February’s First Friday event on the Avenue for the Arts for a reception for “Art With An Impact,” a curated collection of art about poverty in West Michigan.
The issues surrounding poverty affect all of us, but they’re often misunderstood. The artwork featured in this show explore subjects most closely related to poverty in our community: housing, food security, mental or behavioral health, family violence, youth education, or financial security.
The exhibition will be available for viewing at Light Gallery + Studio February 1-22. The opening reception will be a chance to meet the artists and will feature a performance at 7pm. Additionally, 10% of all Light Gallery + Studio sales during the reception will be donated to Heart of West Michigan United Way
