“Life is art.” -Destiny, Brooklyn Day Hab Program and ArtShare Artist

Destiny has explored her life as an artist throughout New York City. Through HeartShare’s Brooklyn Day Habilitation Program, she’s experienced arts education at prestigious city institutions and created her own body of work. The Museum of Modern Art, the Transit Museum and Dedalus Foundation, just to name a few, are extending educational opportunities to HeartShare program par­ticipants, including Destiny. “Life is art,” said Destiny at MoMA, as she framed a shot on her iPhone. The photos inspire her own creations, including during classes led by MoMA educa­tor Rachel Cohen at the HeartShare day pro­gram. Destiny’s pieces have been exhibited in ArtShare shows throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan since the program’s inception. She’s also lent her craftsmanship to HeartShare’s Jewelry Studio, which sells a beautiful selection of handmade earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
