Founded in 1991, Art From the Streets’ mission is to provide a safe and encouraging environment in which the positive spirit of homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression, and to provide them with a source of pride and income through the sale of their work. Twice-weekly open studio sessions are the heart of the program. Homeless and formerly homeless individuals have the opportunity to explore their creativity every Tuesday and Thursday at the Trinity Center, 304 East 7th. Works
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
