Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999 / Picturing Homelessness - Opening Reception at

This event has already happened

The Museum of Street Culture at Encore Park, in association with the Mary Ellen Mark Foundation, hosts the opening of the exhibitions:
• Picturing Homelessness, featuring artworks by 1st through 5th grade children in the Stewpot’s Saturday Kids’ Club,
• Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999, the second installation in the incremental and progressive exhibition "Looking for Home: A Yearlong Focus on the Work of Mary Ellen Mark." Mark was an internationally acclaimed "street" photojournalist.

The opening reception includes a free taco lunch and a public dialogue with the children artists, their parents, Stewpot clients and staff, and the general public. This program is the first in The Museum of Street Culture Dialogue Series.

"Picturing Homelessness" was developed as an educational initiative by The Stewpot’s Saturday Kids’ Club and The Museum of Street Culture. The children’s artworks, to be installed in the arched windows of The Stewpot on Young Street and Park Avenue, were created through the collaborative efforts of children in the Saturday Kids’ Club, who were asked to discuss and reflect on issues and stereotypes of homelessness, ideas of home, and how and why we should work to end homelessness.

"Tiny and Her Children, 1985-1999" and "Picturing Homelessness" will be on view on the street and inside The Stewpot. Beginning Jan. 29, free docent-led tours by Stewpot clients will be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 12-1 pm.

The Museum of Street Culture is located in Encore Park in the heart of an historic area of downtown Dallas, flanked by the Farmers Market, City Hall and the Main Street District.
