For a few months, more than 140 artists have sanded, painted and texturized front doors to benefit two local nonprofits, Gwinnett Habitat for Humanity/ReStore and ArtWorks! Gwinnett.

Today, Gwinnett Great Days of Service student volunteers from Gwinnett Technical College will install the Doors to Home and Hope pieces in Norcross, Duluth, Suwanee and various other public spaces throughout Gwinnett.

“Some of the doors are spectacular,” said Stacie Stamper, donations coordinator with Habitat for Humanity’s Gwinnett ReStore. “I’m in awe of the artistic talent we have hiding in plain sight here in Gwinnett County.”

On Saturday, the Doors of Art are to be dedicated during the Norcross Art Fest. The day also marks the beginning of auctions for the works of art. The funds raised will go to the two nonprofits.

Monday is World Habitat Day Salute in Suwanee Town Center. Executive Director of Gwinnett Habitat Rev. Brent Bohanan will lead Habitat employees, volunteers, supporters, partner families and friends of faith in a salute in recognition of the Habitat for Humanity mission to serve families in need of decent, affordable homes in our community and around the world.

The Doors of Homes and Hope is on display through Nov. 2, when all the doors will be brought to Sims Lake Park for auction pick-up and on-site purchases.
