The Homewood Experience Curated Artwork
“No matter where you join the path, it will always bring you home.”
Art doesn't merely add color. It adds context to a growing conversation which is why the Artwalk invites residents and visitors to explore the history, culture and hope of Homewood.

Honoring Homewood Heroes
"Heroes are not giant statues framed against a red sky. They are people who say: This is my community, and it is my responsibility to make it better."
As a way to honor and uplift the neighborhood's heritage and culture, The Homewood Walk Of Fame will honor Homewood Heroes by displaying banners in the business district along N Homewood Ave from the Busway up to Hamilton Ave!

Coming Spring 2021, we welcome you to stroll N. Homewood Ave for a Homewood History Lesson. Check out our banners featuring the Homewood Heroes chosen by the community and scan the QR codes to learn how each of these legacies is deeply rooted in Homewood.

YMCA Lighthouse Project
"Music can change the world because it can change people. "
Continuing to pull on the power within Homewood, we've partnered with the YMCA Lighhouse Project to produce a dynamic soundtrack for the Homewood Experience.
Music produced by YMCA Lighthouse Project.
"Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much"
Our goal has always been to preserve the rich history, culture, and hope of Homewood. We understand we cannot erase any of the negativity, grief, and hardships Homewood has endured, but we can amplify the narrative that hope, good people, love, and progression still live in Homewood.
