On This MLK Day of Service, Street Art Intended to Spark Talk About Homelessness
You can see what bcWORKSHOP is up to -- and where -- by going to the just-launched 5750Dallas.org. That number represents the number of homeless men, women and children presently living in Dallas.
bcWORKSHOP, of course, is the same group responsible for, among other things, Congo Street's extreme makeover and recent efforts to overhaul O.M. Roberts Elementary in Jubilee Park without encroaching upon the neighborhood. But Brent Brown, who oversees bcWORKSHOP, doesn't want to say much about the effort, only that the silhouettes and accompanying signs are intended to spark a conversation about consumption, ending homelessness and how a solution just might lie somewhere in the middle.
