We know that art can have a profound impact on people’s lives. Studies have shown how nursing home patients transform when they are given ipods with music from their youth, how young people who participate in the arts outperform their peers, and how dancing is good for your brain. Hospitality House, a nonprofit addressing homelessness and poverty in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, has provided a free-of-charge, fine arts studio to the neighborhood’s residents since 1969!
On Friday, May 8th, Hospitality House celebrates the 30th anniversary of it’s annual art auction, which supports their Community Arts Program. Robynn Takayama brings us this segment with Ivan Vera, Hospitality House’s Community Arts Program Manager, and Ira Watkins, one of the artist honorees at the event.
