Library Street Collective is pleased to present the third iteration of Alliance, featuring Jammie Holmes. All of the proceeds raised from the sale of this painting will be donated to the Empowerment Plan, a Detroit-based organization that is working to break the generational cycle of homelessness through employment. ⁠Bids will be accepted now through Friday, August 14th at 9 PM EST.

At a time when there is such an unprecedented need across the country to fund activist and community groups, meal programs, healthcare and shelter—as well as countless other initiatives—we have been energized by the number of artists who have offered their time and work to help causes that resonate with them. We hope that collectors who engage with these works will keep this spirit of generosity in mind, knowing that as they bid they are receiving a work of art that is a catalyst for change. 

“I’m happy to donate to the Empowerment Plan because I want to help with a population that America often forgets about, the homeless. They are human and we as a society don’t value them enough, they deserve more dignity than what we currently give them. When we had the Super Bowl in New Orleans the city ran the homeless community out of many city spaces.  If we valued the homeless situation like we value other things in America, like major league sports, we could make a real change. They are human and they deserve more dignity than what we give them." — Jammie Holmes
