that kicks off the Downtown Gallery Crawl right!

The Art Works of The Contributor
Nashville's Street Newspaper
Diverse perspectives on homelessness. Genuine opportunities for advancement.

The Pot-Luck Dinner and Art Show begins at 6:00 PM

The Downtown Presbyterian Church is proud to welcome the Art Works of The Contributor as the first event on its newly renovated fellowship hall floor. The Art-Luck series is a combination pot-luck dinner and art show during the 1st Saturday Downtown Gallery Crawl. Thus it is fondly thought of as a sort of tail-gating event for art. The Downtown Presbyterian Church is ideally located in the heart of the Gallery Crawl at the corner of 5th Ave. North and Church St. All are welcomed to bring a dish to share at 6:00, enjoy the art and then to visit the galleries across downtown.

This month's show features The Art-Work of The Contributor, Nashville's Street Newspaper. "Street Newspapers" are newspapers from across the world that focus on homelessness and poverty issues and which are sold on the streets by homeless individuals. The Contributor began publication in November of 1997. It is written by both homeless and non-homeless individuals, and it is sold on the street by homeless and formerly homeless individuals as an alternative to panhandling.

Works on display will include works by a cross section of homeless, formerly homeless and non-homeless artists including, Jonathan Field, Ray Ponce De Leon, Tasha French, Paul Fahle, Richard Davis, and others. Vendors will make issues of the June Issue of The Contributor available.

The Downtown Presbyterian Church is located at the corner of 5th Ave. North and Church Street
