In April, members of Mercury’s Human Resources team and their families came together for a virtual art workshop through ArtLifting, an organization that empowers artists who are living with homelessness or disabilities to make a living through their work as artists. ArtLifting offers artists an opportunity to display and sell their artwork by connecting them with businesses around the country. This has included collaborations with LinkedIn, Microsoft and Harvard University, to name a few.
The HR team worked with artist Scott Benner, who shared his story of going from homelessness to housing by selling his artwork and teaching art workshops in the community. During the workshop, Scott guided the group through a step-by-step process to create a geometric masterpiece.
This was a great opportunity for the HR team and their families to have fun and be creative, while also supporting the arts community, which has been significantly impacted by Covid-19. Click here to learn more about ArtLifting.
