The Hard Hat Open Gallery

The Rescue Mission of Roanoke is celebrating the renovations of our historic church on Tazewell Avenue.  When we look at our chapel we see the high ceilings, arched windows, and open space for some 200 chairs.  We now can see the difference between the front and the back of our “saw dusty” sanctuary.  We’re celebrating. We’re celebrating because our TNT campaign has raised 80%  of our goal!  We’re celebrating because John Reed and Judi Anderson (a father duaghter artist duo) are doing a woodcut of the Prodigal Son which will fill one of the arched windows.  We’re bringing back the large dusty room to full life again, restored as it used be a church.  Our vision for a new worship center is happening!


The Rescue Mission of Roanoke is participating in the 40 days and 40 nights Arts Festival, leading up to the opening of the new TaubmanArt Museum.  On October 2, 2008 everyone is invited to a Mission Wide Open House welcoming visitors from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Meet the artists and see their work.  Our Permanent Art Collection is displayed all over the Rescue Mission and will end in our NEW chapel where we will unveil the ‘Prodigal Son’ woodcut mural.
