Check out our collection of blog posts about ArtStreet.

ArtStreet is a community art studio accessible to all artists regardless of their housing status. Through our Open Art Studios, Therapeutic Art-Based Groups, Art-Focused Outreach and Multiple Art Shows and Selling Events, we provide artists with an opportunity to grow as individuals and art makers in the community. ArtStreet focuses on using art as a way of building community, self-efficacy and self-sufficiency. ArtStreet gives artists a common forum to share their experiences, create art, and increase awareness of issues of homelessness.

ArtStreet projects are made possible, in part, by funding from the City of Albuquerque Urban Enhancement Trust Fund and by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
