Joseph's Home Residents Display Paintings at Grumpy's Cafe; Works on Sale

at St. John West Shore Hospital's Festival of the Arts

CLEVELAND, July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- An exhibition of paintings by homeless men in the Joseph's Home Art Program is now on display at Grumpy's Cafe, 2621 West 14th Street, in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland.

The exhibition includes several paintings from residents of Joseph's Home, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System and the only transitional housing facility of its kind in Northeast Ohio. Joseph's Home provides home health care for homeless men recuperating from illness or injury. The Art Program, recently begun and led by Joseph Home Board Chair William M. Denihan, current President of the Cuyahoga County Mental Health Board, provides participants with art instruction and lessons about various artists and methods. The program engages the residents and provides a creative outlet as they recover.

"When we first began this art program, the Joseph's Home residents participating in the art program were surprised with the quality of the paintings. They have realized that they have a tremendous gift to offer through their creativity and individual styles."

Due to the energy and support for this art program, Denihan now hosts the art instruction twice per week.

"Our men are normally limited as to ways they can express themselves," said Georgette Jackson, executive director of Joseph's Home. "We want them to stay invested in what they are doing, and this is a way for them to have something to look forward to and help build their self esteem."

The paintings are on display at Grumpy's Cafe, until July 10. In addition, Joseph's Home residents participating in the Joseph's Home Art Program will be selling their paintings at the St. John West Shore Hospital's Festival of the Arts July 11 - July 13, with proceeds benefiting Joseph's Home.
