Event Description

Recycled Heart: Re-claimed, Re-purposed, and Re-done
the artists of ArtStreet
 

Opening Reception: Friday, February 7, 6 - 8pm
Exhibition Runs: February 7 - 27, 2014

Recycled Heart is an exhibit of works by the artists of ArtStreet, a program of Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless. Artists work with materials that have been re-purposed to create something new and have it seen from a different perspective.  Working with the potential they have within themselves, they provide people with a view of things and show how many things change and become useful. 

”People who are homeless in this society tend to be invisible and for that reason, when they create art, they are telling you, ‘Here I am.  Look at me.  Here is what I can do.’ This is why ArtStreet excites me.  Because life itself excites and that is why I continue to be a part of this.”
– Anand Naren-Oma, ArtStreet Artist

ArtStreet gives community artists – homeless and housed – a common forum to share their experiences, coming together to make art and organize public exhibits like this. One component of the ArtStreet program is a community based open art studio. ArtStreet brings together people from diverse backgrounds, socioeconomic levels, and artistic abilities to share common experiences by making art in a safe and supportive environment. 

ArtStreet’s Open Studio is held every Thursday from 11:00am – 5:00 pm and Friday from 11:00am – 4:30pm.It is located on 1217 1st Street NW, the northwest corner of 1st and Mountain.  For information on purchasing a piece of art, please contact ArtStreet at (505) 248-0817. All proceeds from the sale of ArtStreet art go directly to the artist(s) who created the piece.

This project is made possible in part by the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico Arts, a division of the Office of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts. This project also receives funding from private foundations and contributors.
