There are many agencies and churches that continue to reach out to our homeless population, providing basic essentials like food, clothing, shelter and compassion. Yet one particular individual, friend and colleague – artist, printmaker, painter and educator – Neil Shigley, has an ongoing relationship with our homeless population, speaking to and through his art, capturing their personalities and “spirit” as individuals of our ever-changing culture. Neil looks deep. He humanizes the condition, amplifying it, even forcing us to feel their struggles and the implications homelessness has on our streets and neighborhoods, where they reside. Currently Neil’s work, Invisible People, Invisible Structures, is on view at the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park. We encourage you to see the exhibit.
