Depaul USA, a national homeless services provider, will unveil its second art exhibit, Unlimited Potential: Changing Lives through Artistic Exploration, on May 9.
The new exhibit is a collaboration with Resources for Human Development (RHD) including over 60 carefully curated works. The Gallery will open at 5:30 p.m., featuring a conversation with program directors from both RHD and Depaul USA at 6 pm. Depaul House is located at 5275 Sprague Street.The Gallery at Depaul House hosts regular art exhibits related to homelessness, housing, outsiders, and the Germantown community.

Many program participants attend classes at both facilities and have been long term participants in these art workshops.
