"Art From the Streets is a doc about a program in Austin, Texas, that allows homeless people to create art and then sell it in a once-a-year exhibition. Yeah, I know. It sounds like one of those movies we should see because "It'll be good for you." Well, surprise. Layton Blaylock's film is funny, sad, shocking and astoundingly emotional; a home run that puts a human face on homelessness. And don't let anybody tell you art isn't important. It can be a lifeline. And, yes, this movie will be good for you."
-Bill Butler, Kansas City Star
