Featuring the art of 2 artists trying to reach independence.
Jacob Cohen will present his digital illustration and Morgan Morenz her drawing.
The two artists will exhibit work that reflect their paths toward the quest of independence in a challenging world. The art will be displayed on the walls of Klekolo Coffee for the month of April.
The event is free - but all all sales will go toward each artist's independent living.
"These artists have been up against great challenges in their lives. This art reflects that - but also shows that there are positive things on the horizon that they are heading toward. Each artist inspires me to keep trying to help them and people like them as they try to navigate the world." – said Ryan Casey, Executive Director of the Chippens Hill Group, a Middletown-based company that helps advance people with challenges.
The art will be on display at Klekolo World Coffee through the month of April.
