“Dwelling in a Time of Plagues” Interfaith Art Project
Havtachah – the Promise
by Mike Wirth
Mike Wirth, a Queens University professor, has created this piece entitled "Havtachah – the Promise," to honor those in our community who are living in tent cities and who face dire economic hardship and housing insecurity. This community-wide interfaith project features the a traveling 16' x 8' mural. It was originally installed at Camp North End during the Jewish holiday of Passover. It will move to four other sites around the community for Easter and Ramadan as part of a "pitching our tent tour" that will inspire increased conversation around our need for housing.
MeckMIN is very pleased to be a part of this project – we're partnering with Park Road Baptist Church to host the mural from April 25 to May 12.
Calling for an End to Homelessness
Sunday, May 2, 12-12:30 pm
Park Road Baptist Church
As part of the Interfaith Mural Project, MeckMIN and Park Road Baptist Church will hold a brief prayer service committing ourselves to continued work to end homelessness.
We’ll gather to pray at Mike Wirth’s beautiful and stirring mural "Havtachah – the Promise," which will be on our campus April 25 to May 12.
Donations will be received for Leah’s Hopes and Dreams to support their new transitional home for formerly homeless men as well as their on-going services to people who remain homeless.
