Our Mission:

29 Pieces uses art to awaken, uplift and give voice to the creative human spirit to make genuine, positive social change.

Our Story:

The vision for 29 Pieces was born of tragedy. In August 2000, a young man was murdered in front of her home. Karen processed the profound psychic toll of this event by writing and creating art. The result was “One Bullet,” a deeply personal story published in The Dallas Morning News in 2003. Following “One Bullet,” Karen was compelled to do something to uplift children and adults, something to give them the courage and strength to stand against the violence that permeates our culture. In what Karen call her creative “big bang,” a vision emerged: monumental change through monumental art. 29 Pieces was established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2005 to develop and deliver arts programs to the Dallas-area community.
