The homeless of Beverly Hills 90210, in art

homeless-of-bh.jpgOn Monday evenings, All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills feeds the homeless who show up on the church's patio at Santa Monica Boulevard and Camden Drive. Visual artist and costume designer Lisa Lesniak has made portraits of the homeless who take part. Her artwork will be sold at an event on March 16 to raise money for the feeds and other assistance. Here's a blog entry about the artwork and the event.
