Home Front Exhibit at Grounds for Sculpture

I was quite impressed by the Home Front Exhibit Putting the Pieces Together at Grounds for Sculpture (GFS) which recently debuted. (As many of you may know, I have worked at GFS for over 10 years. For the past 5 I have run an art program called Tots on Tour which is geared towards 3-5 year olds.)
On my way in to teach Tots last month, I was shocked to stumble across the Home Front exhibit which is a collection of art expressions created by homeless adults. http://www.groundsforsculpture.org/education_gallery.html
The power of the exhibit was impressive and sparked a long discussion with a few GFS employees about the benefits of art therapy, etc.
