Established in 1991, Art From the Streets has helped hundreds of people experiencing homelessness form an art community. The wonderful artists at the heart of the organization attend weekly studio sessions. Through Art From the Street’s online store and annual art show each artist receives a majority of the profits from their work.
In this episode of Everyday Superhumans, Kyle and Charlie chat with Executive Director Kelley Worden. Kelley talks about the history of Art From the Streets and the sense of community it gives to everyone involved, from the volunteers to the artists. We also talk about the common misconceptions of people experiencing homelessness and how Art from Streets is finding creative ways to reach out to the artists in a time of social distancing.
