Artworks for Freedom


Principal Jack Devine was recognized as an Artworks for Freedom Spotlight Volunteer!

"Jack Devine sees gold in what many see as trash. Lucky for ArtWorks, we are putting this gold to work for our Golden Doors to Freedom project and the ArtWorks for Freedom | Easton campaign! As an artist consultant and principal of Artists Circle Fine Art, Devine and his team help businesses find art solutions for their offices, including placing, framing and installing fine art in business spaces.

A long-time friend of ArtWorks and board member of our Picturing Freedom partner VisArts Center in Rockville, Maryland, Devine generously donated five of his personally collected vintage doors to our Golden Doors to Freedom project. Additionally, Artists Circle Fine Art has volunteered to transport and install our outdoor exhibits and murals during our Easton and ACTION DC! fall campaigns.

Devine's experience with art consulting has proved the power that art has to address difficult subjects and challenge people to understanding something they otherwise may have avoided.

‘I put artwork in front of people for a living, and I know how it can be a thing to break the ice and stimulate conversation. Because human trafficking is a little bit of a hard thing to talk about or get in the details of - channeling it through art softens the edge and helps get people involved or enthused to address it,’ he said.

We are grateful for Jack's contribution to our projects and upcoming campaigns which will reach thousands across the Eastern Shore, Maryland and Washington, D.C. areas throughout the fall!"
