He uses his collection to create installations in galleries and public spaces to raise awareness about homelessness. During the month of July 2014, Willie Baronet and fellow Director Tim Chumley, along with two other crew members, drove across the country connecting with more than 100 people on the streets and purchasing more than 275 signs. “Signs of Humanity” documents that trip.
