The People Behind The Doors: A Preview of Habitat for Humanity's Doors to Restore Homes and Hope

Anonymous

Although we're still a few weeks out from the event, I thought we'd give you a sneak preview of one of the most unusually artistic charitable events we have ever encountered.

Doors to Homes and Hope launched as an inaugural outdoor art exhibit in October 2013. An art movement grew from a small event planned of 25 artistic doors to be displayed in the host city of Norcross.
Within 30 days, the Call to Artists led to 150 Doors of Art where Suwanee, Duluth and Snellville joined Norcross as exhibiting cities. The art movement engaged the local artists and connected numerous art organizations, art students and Gwinnett entities in addition to the 4 city municipals. Two Men and a Truck joined to transport and handle the Doors of Art.

Here are few of the beautiful doors (and the beautiful people behind them!) who make this event possible. Love to see our readers come out to support the event on October 4th, so save the date!

Sims Lake Park, Suwanee was a beautiful exhibit.
