Home Sweet Home

This exhibition of seventy pieces of art by Minnesota artists, known and unknown, celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Family Housing Fund's existence.

The Family Housing Fund is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and expand quality affordable housing for families with low and moderate incomes in the seven-county metropolitan area of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Through the work of these twenty artists, the exhibit portrays a wide range of housing situations and circumstances - from stark images of homelessness to the celebrations of a family moving into its first home. The fund also sponsored a poetry/essay contest for residents and children living in affordable housing. The winning entries are displayed throughout the exhibit as well.
