Baseball Cards Featuring Homeless People and Drug Addicts.

Neatorama reader Anne wrote to us about Kurt Gohde, a Lexington, Kentucky artist who created baseball cards featuring homeless people and drug addicts:

This year is the "rookie" season of the project and successive
years will follow the individuals through their challenges of homelessness
and addiction. More importantly, the art is viewed not in a museum or
gallery, but by personal interaction with the participants as each is given
cards to handout to the public. The goal is to create awareness not by a
sterile viewing of artwork but by shaking hands and experiencing the living
conditions of the millions of Americans affected by drug addition and
homelessness.

I THINK HOMELESS PEOPLE ARE THE ULTIMATE HUSTLER'S. NOMADS WHO EASILY ADAPT TO ANY ENVIRONMENT. MAYBE WE CAN LEARN A THING OR TWO FROM THEM.
