Home Sweet Home Again

Home Sweet Home Again

In 2005, due to the success of the Home Sweet Home exhibition, the Family Housing Fund organized a second exhibition called “Home Sweet Home Again”. The Family Housing Fund believes that art and poetry can strengthen its public education efforts and be a powerful vehicle for evoking positive social change. The exhibit’s opening also served as a kick-off event for the Fund’s 25th Anniversary.

Artists and poets from the Twin Cities metropolitan area were invited to create art and poetry that celebrated the importance of home and recognized the great need for affordable housing. The resulting exhibition includes more than 100 new artworks and poems on the issues of homelessness, affordable housing, and the meaning of home.

The Family Housing Fund is deeply grateful to the artists and poets for using their unique talents to help convey the critical need for safe, decent, affordable housing for families and individuals in our community. The Family Housing Fund would also like our major public education initiative funders—The McKnight Foundation and The Travelers Companies.

We hope you enjoy viewing our online gallery. For more information about the exhibit, individual pieces, or to use the artwork, please contact us.
