Artist Collective

The artists overcoming homelessness in our Artist Collective are pursuing art and entrepreneurship as a means to make real, sustainable change in their lives. In addition to earning 60% of the sale of original artwork and 25% commission on all prints and merchandise, our artists gain valuable artistic, business, and social skills through the Artist Collective program. In our Artist Collective program, artists utilize the provided art supplies and studio space to create artwork in partnership with mentors from the local art community. Art is also a way for our artists to find beauty in the midst of their daily struggles.
