Last December, the Sacramento Promise Zone coordinated a collaboration between the City of Sacramento Office of Arts of Culture (Melissa Cirrone), City of Sacramento Great Plates Program (Julia Burrow/Colin Rua), California State University of Sacramento Galleries (Kelly Lindner) and Crocker Art Museum (Stacey Shelnut – Hendrick and Faith McKinnie of Crocker Art Museum).
Kelly Lindner and Stacey Shelnut-Hendrick facilitated efforts so that local artists could work with youth from Sol Collective and Sojourner Truth African Museum to create art pieces that were packaged and delivered to 1050 seniors who receive meals through the Great Plates food distribution program.
The art pieces were well received by the seniors in the program. Their responses reflected the fact they felt that the community cared about them. They were also excited to know that the youth participated in the program. Collaboration truly creates more impact!
