Bethany House Looking for Artists

Artist and Professor Erin Szavuly of Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio, is looking for artists to work on an arts project for Bethany House, a shelter for women and children who are fleeing domestic violence.

Artists are invited to create works that will hang in the main hallway of the residence.  There are 7 large panels already created, and more of various shapes and sizes are needed. The Bethany House administration seeks artworks that celebrate cultural diversity, empowerment and positivity. This project calls for completed artworks, and in addition, there is an opportunity to work alongside shelter residents to create art collaboratively on site.  The project is to be completed by mid-January.

If you are interested in contributing to this project, either by creating an artwork or by working on site with residents, contact Professor Szavuly : for an application.

  1. Hi K.A. Thank you for posting this worthy volunteer opportunity. We have altered the process slightly in that we will have work sessions at Lourdes University with whomever would like to work as a team. Due to the safe haven nature of Bethany House, we are creating these works sessions at Lourdes instead. Thank you!!! I hope to hear from helpers soon! P.S. if you come for a work session, we have paints and brushes that can be used in house.
