A $50 donation to The Art’s Room Project gets you a print of this painting by Anne Plaisance.

Local artist Anne Plaisance marries the healing and social powers of art in her newest project, The Art’s Room, a tiny house that, once erected, will serve as part social commentary, part therapy space. Plaisance, who does workshops with residents of homeless women’s shelter Transition House, hopes the structure, which she will build with those women, will spark discussion about their situations and express their aspirations. A fund-raising campaign to supplement a grant from the Cambridge Arts Council runs until May 9, with a $50 donation earning you a signed print of the oil painting shown. “born to be abused,” 2017 by Anne Plaisance for The Art’s Room Project, online at theartsroomproject.com
