Sundays in My City: Art Walk


Unknown Mami



We are traveling the world together with the Unknown Mami.

I am joining you from Middletown, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati.

Every once in a while the downtown area hosts an "art walk"- businesses donate their window space to house artwork of various mediums, all created around a single theme.






The organizers chose to highlight the plight of the homeless this holiday season.
The display (on loan from a city in KY) included photos taken by the homeless, crayon and marker drawings by a homeless guy who hung out in a Kinko's office supply store, and photos of families in a shelter.



















It was very interesting and sad. A poignant way to be reminded of all we have for which to be thankful.
