A public art exhibit of homeless signs will be on display daily during business hours.

SIGNS OF HUMANITY, DOCUMENTARY FILM SCREENING
Signs of Humanity is a documentary film that explores the inter-related themes of home, homelessness, compassion and humanity. During the month of July, 2014, Willie and three filmmakers drove across the country, interviewing more than 100 people on the streets and purchasing over 280 signs. Signs of Humanity is a film about that trip.

Filmmaker Willie Baronet will be present at both screenings for a Q&A following the film.

The event is free, but general admission reservations are required.
