crusade4art A little girl perched inside her living room window, smiling and watching us as we mingle with people outside on the street. Her apparition-like figure and the reflections of the trees outdoors was too stunning to pass up. (Photo by Megan E. Doherty) @megan_e_doherty

crusade4art Br. Jim holds a bottle of holy water as we wait at the Queen of Heaven cemetery.

We had been looking for a grave but couldn't find it. We thought the teen's nickname, "Angel," might be on the headstone, but it wasn't.
We waited for the family to arrive, and followed them and the gaggle of kids as they hauled chairs, bottles of water, balloons, flowers, figurines and candles to where Juan has been buried since 2009 -- he was shot and killed after playing basketball in Cornell Square Park one night.

This was the six year anniversary of his death. He was only 14. (Photo by Megan E. Doherty) @megan_e_doherty

crusade4art We're on the 9th floor of a building in the Dearborn Homes housing project visiting Joyce. She found out a few years ago that she has AIDS, but she learned that with the right medication, diet and lifestyle, it was not the death sentence it used to be. But recently she learned she has terminal cancer. This one she can't beat. She called Br. Jim and asked him to help her go over some paperwork. "Final Wishes" planning guides. Where does she want her funeral? Who does she want to be the minister? Who will carry her coffin? She breaks down in tears. Her body convulsing through the sobs. She leaves the room multiple times to collect herself. In a moment of quiet reflection waiting for her to return to the kitchen table, Br. Jim looks stressed. (Photo by Megan E.

crusade4art Few are those willing to walk the dangerous streets of Chicago's South and West Sides - going into the projects, working with gangs. But this has been Br. Jim's path for over 30 years, and for the last 2.5 I've been walking with him

In the afternoons this week I will be sharing images from by project "Back of the Yards", in which I follow the only remaining member of a tiny street ministry in Chicago, Brothers and Sisters of Love.
Here is Br. Jim visiting with friends, as seen through a window of dandelions. In a neighborhood beset with so many problems, it's easy to overlook how beautiful it can be. (Photo by Megan E. Doherty) @megan_e_doherty

crusade4art I couldn't think of a better way to end my #Crusade4Art Instagram takeover than by posting a photo of John Altdorfer signing the first of 265 prints that will go home with every baby born at three Pittsburgh hospitals in September. With the help of Jennifer Schwartz and Crusade for Art, I founded Start with Art to create the youngest art collectors in the world right here in Pittsburgh. If you want to see what John's print looks like, please visit www.startwithartpgh.org. Or just have your baby in Pittsburgh! @northshorepa posting for @crusade4art for the last time. If you like what you've seen, don't forget to follow me at @northshorepa! #StartWithArtPGH 2w

deb_schwedhelm Hello from chilly Australia. I wanted to share that I'm super excited to be taking over the @crusade4art feed all this week. I'm hoping to find wi-fi each day as it's super hard to come by here in Byron Bay but I will do my best. Today's photo is the amazing Jody Ryan on Nudgee Beach in Brisbane. #Brisbane #Australia #DebSchwedhelmPhotography #DebSchwedhelm #beach #crusade4art #takeover #grateful 2mon
