RedLine show opens tonight which showcases the art of formerly-homeless Denver residents

If most of the artists in Denver could make a living off their artwork, the staff of Denver's restaurants and bars would be getting a big makeover. But sustaining the homeless through art is the idea behind RedLine's Reach Studio. Tonight, pieces from the project will be on display at RedLine with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. and will be on display Friday as well.

Last year, Michelle Kimball and Kate Young, the program managers, created the now renamed Project 2323 after meeting in a Metropolitan State College class. They held weekly art seminars in various mediums at St. Francis Center, reaching about thirty people over the summer of 2010.
