Hearts Of Fire Project, Ojai Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement All of the art in our gallery was created by the men, women and children at homeless shelters. A portion of each sale goes to develop permanent art programs at the shelters and to compensate the artists.
The Hearts Of Fire Project is a social profit, 501(c)(3) organization based in Ojai, CA. Our mission is shift perceptions of homeless people through their artistic self-expression. We visit homeless shelters and empower people to show the world who they are through art and music. They have some important things to say and we are here to help them do that.
We bring the art and music to the world at art shows and other events. Our intention is to connect people and help us overcome the barriers between us. In our first 18 months, we have traveled 8,000 miles visiting 21 shelters around the U.S.
