Unsheltered Art & A Mobile Outreach Bus

UNSHELTERED ART

We ended the year 2016 with a give-away of art supplies for the young homeless artists who participate in our art show, Unsheltered Art.

Our generous supporters sent amazing supplies

Many UTW supporters followed our call, to donate materials, and there was plenty to choose from, from canvasses and brushes to acrylic paints and water colors, and even a sewing machine. All was happily welcomed.

The next step for us now will be to find a location for our next Unsheltered Art show featuring works by homeless, at-risk youth and young adults. If you are in L.A. and know of a place in the Hollywood area that would be interested in teaming up with us for this, please send them our way!

Below a few of the pieces that were shown at previous Unsheltered Art shows we have organized here in Los Angeles. Artists Marquze Killion, Neil Massey, and Wyatt Stalnaker.

UTW’S NON-PROFIT, A MILLION DROPS

Disney illustrator Wendy Grieb created this awesome image for us

Since 2013, we have been cruising the streets of Hollywood looking for young homeless in need, taking the time to sit with them and talk to better understand how we can help.

Now it’s time to turn it up a notch. For more visibility and to better provide our support, we are going to buy an old short bus or used van and turn it into our mobile outreach center.

If you want to support UTW L.A. with this project, please consider making a small donation. An anonymous donor is going to match every contribution we receive by January 15 – up to $2,000 – with an additional 50%. We are super excited about this!
