WHAT: “We Are Not Your Homeless” Art Installation by Monte
WHERE: Open Book Bookstore and Event Center, 671 Maltman Drive (adjacent to Sierra Roasters), Grass Valley
WHEN: Now ( Installation will be an ongoing process with new elements added weekly)
Nevada County artist Monte is currently installing his art piece-in process, called “We Are Not Your Homeless.” An early look at the installation today found the artist at work putting up new elements of his still-evolving alarmingly forceful and provocative art piece.
“This installation is about the civil rights abuses that the homeless face,” Monte says.
Shown below are elements currently on the wall: “I Do Not Make $70,000 a Year,” “Do 2 More Homeless Citizens Need to Freeze to !Death!?,” “Housing Not Handcuffs.” All art images © Monte-2019, shown with permission.
To see this art work-in-progress, stop by the Open Book, open 7am-4pm, closed Sundays.
