“Signs of Humanity,” an exhibition that includes signs from Philadelphia’s homeless and research from interviews with some of them, will be on display at Jefferson’s Dorrance H. Hamilton Building from Sept. 17-22, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Sept. 14.
During a week in July, a group of Jefferson medical and population health students, Rosemary Frasso, director of the public health program, and artist Willie Baronet fanned out through Philadelphia’s street to purchase signs and talk to some of the city’s homeless people.
Frasso described the project as a humbling experience. “It could totally be any of us,” she told the Inquirer. “If you don’t have a safety net, you can land at the corner of 15th and Walnut.”
