We are proud to present the winner of our Soup N’at summer edition, Gerry Florida, of the “Why Art?” Billboard project!
Florida teaches art at Shuman Juvenile Detention Center and raises funds to print posters of the artwork of kids in the Center that go on Pittsburgh Port Authority buses. This public artwork project helps the kids build self-esteem and breaks down stereotypes of those in detention centers among the communities to which they return. One of the upcoming artworks to go on a city bus will proudly display that it has been sponsored in part by Soup N’at!
Congratulations! We can’t wait to see the public art on buses around the city!
At the end, a big thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, Musician Jacquea Mae and kind sponsors and supporters ( local chefs Caitlin Crawford and Madalyn Hochendonor, Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance, East End Food Co-op, Whitfield at Ace Hotel Pittsburgh, Bar Marco, Allegro Hearth Bakery, Trader Joe’s, and Penn Brewery).
