Poverty & the Arts is thrilled to announce our new relationship with Suntrust Bank! Through our partnership, our artists impacted by homelessness no longer have to pay fees when cashing their checks from original artwork sales at a Suntrust location. The complex nature of our artists' circumstances prohibit many of them from opening their own bank account (i.e. home address, regular income, etc.) but that is the eventual goal. Having access to cash their checks at no charge is a first step in the process of re-establishing stability, hopeful that eventually they can open their own accounts. Thank you Suntrust!
