The Artist: While Clifton Hayes began making art at an early age, it is his recent experiences—loss of employment, housing and some family and friends—that has brought Clifton back to his art and to artist communities. Clifton creates his works at Art from the Streets, a free and open studio that serves the local homeless and formerly homeless community and through Mobile Loaves and Fishes, an organization that promotes dignity for local homeless individuals. Working with ArtLifting empowers Clifton, as it serves as a signal that his creations are valued and cherished by others—“Creating art makes me feel good. I can take something that is empty and make something that is new and expressive.”
ArtLifting: Since 2013 ArtLifting has been dedicated to empowering artists living with homelessness or disabilities through the celebration and sale of their artwork. Not only does ArtLifting give its artists a path to financial stability, but it gives them community, a space to cultivate their art. ArtLifting uses its “business for good” with proceeds going to the artists themselves and toward strengthening art service agencies, shelters and disability centers across the country. Today, ArtLifting is doing this important and uplifting work in 19 cities across the United States.
