Bryn Mawr seniors win $10,000 Davis Grant to fund arts project involving homeless men
Bryn Mawr seniors Lucy Edwards and Adaobi Kanu believe in the power of art to transform the lives of those who practice it. This summer, a $10,000 grant from the Davis Projects for Peace foundation will enable them to put that faith to work in West Philadelphia, where they will collaborate with homeless men on an ambitious project to generate income, self-esteem, and community understanding through artistic production.
