Historical Context:
Reb Roberts and his wife, Carmella Loftis opened an art gallery in 1999 called The Sanctuary Folk Art Gallery, which works closely with the Heartside Ministries art program nurturing creativity and artistic expression of low-income and homeless people. They have both done extensive work in promoting the arts in the East Grand Rapids district. On his work Reb Roberts says, "Art can be a part of a sustainable urban environment... With some true collaboration, neighborhoods and artists can work to incorporate original ideas into an art filled city. What an opportunity Eastown has presented to all of Grand Rapids...art is the next truly urban frontier."
