STUDENTS COLLABORATE WITH ARTISTS TO HELP NONPROFITS

Updated: Nov 5, 2018


Read the full article about the program that I made art with Solomon’s Temple and Emory students.



Here’s the part about the project i did:

SOLOMON’S TEMPLE

When Darci Rodenhi Jaret, a master of divinity student at Candler School of Theology, enrolled in the course, she arrived with a project in mind.

Jaret had previously volunteered with Solomon’s Temple, a component of Restoration ATL, which offers residential transitional housing for women and their children.

It was a cause close to Jaret, who had once been homeless herself. “Before engaging with the Ethics Department, I was holding group conversations with the women at the shelter, where we would talk about our journeys,” she says.

So Jaret collaborated with residents to create a large, three-piece, mixed media mural, with swirling colors that evolve from dark and brooding to bright, sunny hues, “moving toward the future in a hopeful way, as if the dawn is happening.”

The work will be a permanent installation at Solomon’s Temple. Student team members included Yujun Yan and Jennifer Hwang.
