Art From The Streets is an Austin-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering homeless or at-risk a nurturing and safe place to create art. Art From the Streets was established in 1991 to give transient people a way to develop as artists and to use their creativity to generate income through art sales, with the ultimate goal of climbing out of homelessness. Purchasing artwork supports the artists directly. Donating to our program helps us to offer a free Open Studio for the homeless and at-risk.
