“This exhibit is reflective of the fact that the homeless in our community are not invisible,” said Elizabeth Igleheart, vice president of advancement at Transitions. “When we bring the client artists out to the airport to see their art on display, it gives them such a sense of self-worth and pride. This exhibit helps all of us remember that even the least among us have a gift they can share if we let them.”

The exhibit will be on display in the entrance to CAE’s food court through the end of fall. It features several different mediums, including drawing and painting.

“We’re thrilled to be able to continue our strong partnership with Transitions to bring such a powerful exhibit to our travelers,” said Kim Jamieson Crafton, CAE’s director of marketing and air service development. “By amplifying a marginalized group within our community, CAE is able to ensure its focus of diversity, equity and inclusion remains woven into the fabric of everything we do.”
