Brush with the Law is a 501 (c)(3) organization that seeks to help socially marginalized individuals reconnect with the community through collaborative creative art projects.
The above video shows examples of some of the work we have done out in the community.
We believe that by working on creative projects that serve the community, marginalized individuals and community members start to understand and recognize one another as human beings.
The experience of feeling accepted and welcomed back into the community is a powerful stimulus for change among participants and the artworks produce visual affirmations of change, transforming “blighted” spaces to reveal the strength and spirit of the community.
Art projects create a collaborative and inclusive environment that brings people together to overcome challenges, provide a creative outlet for participants and offer the community an opportunity to experience working with – or benefitting from – the efforts of socially disadvantaged individuals.
“This program was one of the best things that ever happened to me. It allowed me to have creative expression during a trivial time in life!” ~V
