Beautiful Minds: Aurora envisions new dawn for artists in recovery

Homeless, stressed and dealing with a family crisis, the woman hardly seemed a goddess when she entered the Neil Dobbins Center in Asheville.

She hopes to open the studio sometime next year in the River Arts District. (Photo by Caitlin Byrd)
