Throughout the month of August 2011, Bob, the Mariners Inn Case Manager, has taken several of our consumers to the Detroit Institute of Arts to meet with Mr. Vito, who is a local artist and teacher. Mr. Vito has been working closely with the gentlemen at Mariners Inn and has helped them to create pieces of art from wooden blocks.
The blocks were then painted and a story was added to tell a little bit about what the piece means to each creator.
The artwork will be on display for the "Community Group Exhibition" on Tuesday August 16, 2011. Mariners Inn will attend the event.
