Healing with Therapeutic Art

by HomeFront's ArtSpaceApril 1, 2022 - April 30, 2022

HomeFront believes that having a full and rich life — one that truly breaks through the cycle of poverty — involves more than a roof over your head, food for your stomach, and a paycheck. The human spirit needs nourishment: the power of life’s richness that gives meaning to our day-to-day lives. HomeFront runs two therapeutic art programs that transform the lives of clients:  ArtSpace and SewingSpace.  In these programs, our artists can safely express feelings that cannot always be put into words.

Overcoming: Reflections on Struggle, Resilience, and Triumph

by Rhinold PonderJanuary 10, 2022 - March 5, 2022

Several days before his assassination, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. proclaimed that “We Shall Overcome”, in a refrain motivated by the hymn of the same name and the generations of Americans who fought (and will continue to fight) for justice and freedom for people of color.   In “Overcoming,” artist, activist and writer, Rhinold Ponder, inspired by Dr. King, employs his mixed media paintings to provoke reflection of the resilience of Black people in a continuing struggle for recognition of their humanity and demand

IT WAS NO DREAM · NO FUE UN SUEÑO

October 12, 2021 - November 20, 2021

IT WAS NO DREAM · NO FUE UN SUEÑO A group of high school students in New Jersey, stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic, gathered virtually to read and discuss Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis. The alchemy of the story, in which a young man wakes in his room as a monstrous insect, kicks off a conversation among this cohort of first- and second-generation immigrant teens.      A short film documents the Futuro youth mentoring program at LALDEF, the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

Princeton Together

by Sheila BodineAugust 20, 2021 - October 9, 2021

My hope is that this

The Spirit of Truth-Seeking

December 6, 2019 - December 20, 2019

Colleges and universities, especially those devoted to liberal arts education, are fundamentally concerned with the pursuit, transmission, and preservation of knowledge. They are, according to Professors George and West, “truth-seeking institutions.” In their October 11th conversation—part of the Being Human Festival of the Princeton University Humanities Council(link is external)—the professors discussed the conditions that need to be established and maintained for colleges and universities to fulfill their truth-seeking mission. Professors George and West considered the virtues that must be exemplified and practiced by faculty and students alike

Ceramics by Jenyfer Guethe

by Jenyfer GuetheMarch 30, 2019 - May 4, 2019

Visit the Arts Council of Princeton’s Solley Lobby Gallery to view work by ceramic artist Jenyfer Guethe. My work with clay combines functional pottery with free flowing sculptural forms. Since I was young I’ve been fascinated with how nature seems to have an overall “flow”, similar to how ocean waves are constantly changing the shoreline with each ebb and flow of the tide. This can leave a subtle soft touch on the sand when a gentle wave has pulled away, or a more pronounced sharper
