Doors to Homes and Hope:
Art exhibit benefits Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity/ ReStore and ArtWorks! Gwinnett.
A unique art exhibit of about 150 artist-painted doors was on display in locations throughout Gwinnett County during the month of October, including at Suwanee’s Sims Lake Park. The Doors to Homes & Hope exhibit was designed to support both families in need of decent, affordable homes and the arts in Gwinnett County. Proceeds from auctioning/selling the doors benefited Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity/ReStore and ArtWorks! Gwinnett. Through October, doors were exhibited at Sims Lake Park with a few more displayed at Town Center Park. Other doors were displayed in various locations throughout Gwinnett County, including in Duluth, Norcross, and Snellville. ■
