‘Unsheltered’ A Full Success

Frankie felt immediately drawn to this piece by Kris Williams.

Our opening reception for ‘Unsheltered’ – Art by Homeless, At-Risk Youth & Young Adults of Los Angeles on Saturday, February 4 was a full success!

A seemingly endless stream people came in to check out the 44 pieces that were up on the walls of Wash On Western (WOW), a brand new, very hip laundromat in the heart of Hollywood. Friends, family, co-workers, strangers, some who had followed our invite, others who just happened to walk by.

We had a full house, people loved the art and everybody enjoyed free tacos and lemonade, generously donated by WOW. And if that wasn’t enough, chiropractor Dr. Robert Zeravica set up a treatment table and offered free adjustments!

At the end of the day, 15 works by young homeless had been sold and will be displayed in someone’s home soon. For now though, they are still up on the walls at WOW, so don’t worry if you couldn’t make it last Saturday. The show will continue throughout the month, and WOW 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.

Laura fell in love with  Neil Massey’s ‘Life Is Strange’.

Claudia chose an original by Morgan Movesaround for her home.

Ren picked ‘Blue Smoke’ by Neil Massey for her collection.

Artist Andrew Washington was thrilled to sell this piece to Gus.
