Hosted by Community Grant recipient, Color Outside the Lines, the Unity Project is a collaborative public art project that pairs 24 local artists with 24 foster youth, most of whom have been placed for adoption. Together, the duos worked on each large format piece over the course of three months. The new works they created together will be on display at the Redd, October 12.
