The Stewpot Open Art Program--which has been in existence since the 1990s--nurtures the artistic talents of homeless and at-risk individuals. 

It provides opportunities for homeless and at-risk individuals to improve the quality and enjoyment of their lives by developing and expanding their creativity.

When the renovation of 508 Park is complete, a permanent home for exhibiting the art created in the program will be created, and the Open Art Program will move to the second floor of 508.

This film highlights the opening of the annual December art show in the Bradshaw Gallery for the Stewpot Open Art Program.
