The first guest, author Teri McGill, with UTW founder Maike

Our opening reception for ‘Unsheltered’ – Art by Homeless, At-Risk Youth & Young Adults of Los Angeles was a full success!

A constant stream people came in to check out 44 pieces of powerful and thought provoking art currently up on the walls of Wash On Western, a brand new, hip laundromat in the heart of Hollywood.

The guests were as diverse as the show. Friends, family, co-workers and strangers, some who had received our invite, others who just happened to walk by, and of course the artists  – everyone mingled, networked and had a great time.

At the end of the day, 15 works by young homeless had been sold with 100% of the proceeds going to the young artists.

‘Unsheltered’ will continue until February 25, and Wash On Western is open 24/7. There are still 30 unsold pieces, beautiful, exciting works waiting for someone to fall in love with them. Prices start as low as $15.
