Spear’s painting, a commentary on homelessness, suddenly gained significance for Studtmann and Spear who believe the damaged piece is presently more symbolically complete. The event features live music, beer&wine, and artwork from homeless artists affiliated with ArtWorks945 ArtWorks945 is an outreach program that utilizes art to carry out UMC's mission of bringing the community together to end homelessness--one life at a time.
