ANDERSONVILLE — Art slated for sale at home decor shop Murray & White during Andersonville Arts and Design Weekend will benefit the Creative Arts Program at Misericordia.

Andersonville's Art and Design Weekend, in its 12th year, celebrates local artists and designers with exhibitions and art tours, receptions and performances. An array of area businesses plan on displaying art in their shops in support of the effort.

Murray & White, 5416 N. Clark St., is participating by featuring artwork created by Misericordia's residents, with all proceeds going back to the program, according to the store.

Misericordia, a social service agency at 6300 N. Ridge Ave., houses and cares for kids and adults with developmental and physical disabilities.

Its Creative Arts Program, according to Misericordia, includes six programs for residents that each focus on varying skills, mediums and challenges.

"These programs," Misericordia said, "facilitate empowerment through art by giving residents a voice through visual expression and by sharing their achievements with families, friends, and the community."
