WE ARE ALL HOMELESS Artist Reception was a HUGE success

On Tuesday evening, One Arts Plaza hosted an artist reception for Willie Baronet, the visionary behind the WE ARE ALL HOMELESS project. His project, on display in the One Arts Plaza lobby, consists of hundreds of homeless signs, which he has bought and collected while traveling across the United States. Its purpose is to challenge beliefs on what it means to be homeless. Is home a physical place of comfort and safety? Or is it a place of emotional security and identity?

The reception was met with positive response. Viewers enjoyed bites from One Arts Plaza’s restaurant Proof + Pantry and champagne from Contadi Castaldi Franciacorta Brut NV. In addition to hearing from Baronet, Teresa Hiser and Dr. David Woody with The Bridge and Sherri Ansley with the Housing Crisis Center shared information about their organizations and the work they do with the homeless community.  Guests also left messages on the interactive display describing what home means to them.

If you missed out on the reception, stop by the One Arts Plaza to see Baronet’s WE ARE ALL HOMELESS installation now on display until October 4, 2015. You can also join us on next Wednesday, September 23 from 6pm – 8pm for a special Artist Talk.  


Viewers observe the installation while enjoying snacks provided by Proof + Pantry.
