DESCRIPTION

In 2008, The Salvation Army Alegria opened an art gallery in their Silver Lake housing community for homeless families affected by HIV/AIDS. Located in the entrance to the community center, the art gallery hosts quarterly exhibitions of contemporary artists, providing residents and visitors the opportunity to experience a wide range of visual arts. With the initial success of Alegria’s art gallery, the program has expanded into multiple social services locations under the name Art and Shelter. In addition to the gallery at Alegria, Art and Shelter manages a growing collection of donated and loaned art that is exhibited at social services facilities throughout Southern California.
