My entry for AP2011 will be a mixed media display of portraits of residents of Mel Trotter Ministry. MTM located at 225 Commerce Ave,is a local Christian organization that ministers to the homeless and those who are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. Each large scale pastel portrait will be created plein air at street level near the corner of Commerce and Cherry in Grand Rapids between August 22 and September 15. Because the portraits will be painted in pastel, they will not be immune to the wear and wash out of potential weather so they will in essence, be as transient and vulnerable at the subjects they portray. My exhibit at 50/Monroe/Huntington will use photographs and other media.
