Christopher Statton and Megan Wilson painted Housing Is A Human Right as part of their project Better Homes and Gardens Today.
Better Homes & Gardens Today is a public art project developed to:
1) Heighten awareness around “home” and the realities of homelessness;
2) Cultivate a dialog within communities and amongst disparate groups about housing instability; and
3) To raise money to benefit the Gubbio Project, the Coalition On Homelessness, and At The Crossroads, organizations working to address homelessness in San Francisco.
ALL PROCEEDS – 100% – FROM THE SALES OF BETTER HOMES & GARDENS TODAY’S LIMITED EDITION SIGNS WILL BE EQUALLY DIVIDED BETWEEN THE THREE PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS – THE GUBBIO PROJECT, THE COALITION ON HOMELESSNESS, AND AT THE CROSSROADS.
Wilson and Statton are creating a limited edition of 300 pairs of hand-painted “Home” signs. The single word for “Home” is painted in black in different languages against a color background and with a flower. The signs are painted on 1⁄4″ plywood and range in size from 12″x18″ to 16″x30.” Wilson and Statton presented the project in the storefront window at ATA (Artists’ Television Access) in October 2014 and in the storefront window of the Roxie Theater in December/January 2015.
The signs are available for purchase for $100/pair. The purchasers will get one sign and the other sign will be donated to one of the three partner organizations to use as they see best fit). Purchasers will also be provided with more information on each of the organizations and how they can further help. All of the proceeds and the signs purchased for the organizations will be divided evenly and go to the three partners (Gubbio Project, Coalition On Homelessness, and At The Crossroads).
Signs are available for purchase on the project’s Website at: www.BetterHomesAndGardensToday.org.
