Colors of Diversity

The images created by Public Art Works for Amos House have helped to engage and bring together people whose paths cross frequently however, remain unaware of one another in a community culturally enriched but creatively deprived. When a diverse community comes together the finished art celebrates that collective voice. Our images are inspired by a microcosm of cultures, reflective of the towns and cities in which we live and work. Amos House offers us an opportunity to assure the art's sustainability within those communities. Public Art Works has a unique ability to build bridges and seek community involvement through the common language of art.
