Thank you to everyone who joined us for Central ArtWorks 2018!
At Central OAC, our art program provides a safe, quiet place for our guests to pause and engage creatively, have fun, and build confidence that can help our guests transition out of homelessness. This event featured an exhibit of some of Atlanta’s talented, creative, and unique artists, who are currently experiencing homelessness.
Central OAC’s ArtWorks program provides a creative outlet to our guests who pass through the COAC’s doors seeking assistance and support. Our guests who participate may have artistic experience, be curious to learn something new, or simply enjoy the respite creative expression provides.
The Central ArtWorks annual art show was initiated in 2014 to provide insight into the lives, experiences, and skills of these artists and those who become artists through Central OAC. Providing a professional environment for displaying their art allows our artists an outlet for public creative expression and storytelling. It is also an avenue to appreciate those gifts and support this refuge for creativity, engagement, and hope.
