Marina Adams contributes to 'Artist Plate Project 2020' Coalition for the Homeless, USA
Marina Adams and forty-nine other leading contemporary artists have each designed a limited-edition porcelain plate that is being offered for sale in support of Coalition for the Homeless. Funds raised will provide vital services to thousands of people experiencing homelessness and instability in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. The purchase of just one plate can feed 75 homeless and hungry New Yorkers.
Coalition for the Homeless is America's oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Since its inception in 1981, the Coalition has worked through litigation, public education and direct services to ensure that these goals are realized. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the organisation dramatically increased its direct services to meet the huge surge in need and is now preparing for the difficult days ahead.
