On all of Community of Hope’s projects, Fitzgerald Fine Arts (FFA) assisted in creating an atmosphere of calm familiarity and compassion. By utilizing the varied and talented artists of the Anacostia and Washington art community, FFA brought together images reflecting the cultural and colorful history of the area. Well represented are works of art from “Life Pieces to Masterpieces”, an organization of young, disadvantaged, African American men and boys, who encourage their participants to invest in the arts and Art Enables, a vocational arts program dedicated to creating opportunities for artists with disabilities.
