Brush With the Law
Brush with the Law is a (501 (c)(3) organization that seeks to help socially marginalized individuals reconnect with the community through collaborative creative art projects.
We believe that by working on creative projects that serve the community, marginalized individuals and community members start to understand and recognize one another as human beings.
Art projects create a collaborative and inclusive environment that brings people together to overcome challenges, provide a creative outlet for participants and offer the community an opportunity to experience working with – or benefitting from – the efforts of socially disadvantaged individuals.
The experience of feeling accepted and welcomed back into the community is a powerful stimulus for change among participants and the art works produce visual affirmations of change, transforming “blighted” spaces to reveal the strength and spirit of the community.
Brush With the Law is being established to help provide inclusive arts projects in a community setting for those struggling with drug addiction and mental health issues, those on probation/parole, and at risk youth in the metropolitan Philadelphia area, specifically cities within Montgomery, Bucks and portions of Delaware Counties.
Community activities include but are not limited to:
· Mural Painting – interior/exterior
· Parking Meters painting
· Exhibition and Display opportunities at different art galleries, museums, and universities
· Collaboration with other likeminded nonprofits, working together on creative projects that join constituents from these various organizations and BWTL
· Mosaics and multi-media design pieces for places such as community gardens
