New Homes for the Homeless Come with Art

H*ART Gallery on Main Street sells the work of unconventional artists, like homeless people, people with disabilities, and refugees. Now, the gallery is helping put some of that art into the homes of unconventional collectors, too: homeless people who are moving into a new home. Mary Helen Miller spoke with Ellen Heavilon, the executive director of H*ART Gallery, and Jamie McConnico, a seventh grader who helped start the new program.
