The Road Home: A Journey from Homelessness to Housing will be on display at the Kansas City Museum (in the Education & Meeting Room on the second floor) from November 3, 2023 through April 28, 2024.
The Road Home: A Journey from Homelessness to Housing is a photography exhibition created by artist and filmmaker Randy Bacon in collaboration with reStart Inc., a nonprofit organization that runs the only homeless shelter in downtown Kansas City, Missouri serving all populations. This exhibit was commissioned by reStart and inspired by The Road I Call Home, Randy’s travelling exhibition which brings attention and empathy to the nations’ homeless population.
Sponsored by JE Dunn Construction, The Road Home: A Journey from Homelessness to Housing is comprised of 18 portraits and stories of current and former reStart residents as well as a short film that shows first-hand what it looks like when the need for housing goes unmet.
In addition to the exhibit, there will be a series of programs in 2024 at the Kansas City Museum to provide learning opportunities and discussions about how community members may work together more effectively to address homelessness in Kansas City. Below is list of the programs in 2024, and more information will be available soon on this website.
