"Faces of Folk": Portraits and Stories of Homelessness
A portrait can sometimes help us see people in new and revealing ways. KSJD's Tom Yoder talks with local artist Bronwyn Strickland, who has painted portraits of homeless people who have been guests at the Bridge Emergency Shelter in Cortez, and Laurie Knutson, Executive Director at the Bridge, about how portraits and stories of homeless folks help us connect with them, and the upcoming fundraising event "Faces of Folk", a celebration of the lives of homeless people in our community.
