GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) The people behind an art program in Grand Rapids have made it their mission to help neighbors living with homelessness or extreme poverty.
The Arts Program at Heartside Ministry is open for the public to come in and find a place of peace to think about what they want in life, then they give them the tools to help accomplish that. The space serves as both a studio and a gallery. Self-taught artists can display and sell their work. Most pieces are priced between $10 and $40. Proceeds directly benefit the individual artist. The ministry receives 26% of the proceeds, which it uses to help pay for the artist’s supplies. The artists earn the remaining 84%.
The Heartside Ministry’s annual gala, “The Art of the Heart,” is on Wednesday, October 22 at St. George’s in Grand Rapids. Tickets are $75. The gala begins at 6 p.m. To purchase tickets, call (616) 235-7211 or visit their Facebook page. Please RSVP by October 10.
