Art from the Streets provides a safe and encouraging environment in which the positive spirit and creativity of homeless and formerly homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression, and provides them with a source of pride and income through the sale of their work.
Homeless human beings have been joining this safe, encouraging and life-changing environment of the Art From the Streets program for 25 years. The benefits that these “artists from the streets” have experienced from their hard work include greater emotional and financial stability, improved self-esteem and personal growth. Every artist receives 95% of the proceeds of the sale of their work and the transformation from a negative label to a positive one enables enormous newfound opportunities for each artist in our program.
Join us at the “Give Art A Home” fundraiser taking place on April 26th, 2018 at Gather North Lamar, 5540 North Lamar, Austin, TX 78756, 7:30-9:30pm. Our goal is raise $30,000 to support this program so we can continue to support these amazing artists.
