Homeless and Hungry, a local Homeless Advocacy group, teamed up with a world-renowned graffiti artist, Skid Robot and the Albin Polasek Museum of Winter Park to create street art that helps people experiencing homelessness in Orlando.
If you are not familiar with street artist Skid Robot, his work illustrates the dreams of the homeless of LA's infamous "Skid Row".
He paints illegal graffiti behind the impoverished to highlight the need for change. His art empowers those without a voice as he illustrates their personal stories.
Now Skid Robot turns his advocacy eye to the homeless population of Orlando. His installation will be up through the month of September at the Albin Polasek Museum.
This will be the first of four pieces of his art ever offered for sale! All proceeds from the sale of his art will be used to help 4 homeless citizens of Orlando! All donations collected aid Kathleen, Daniel, Jennifer, and Carl, people experiencing homelessness in Orlando!
These street art murals specifically address the issues related to homelessness.
Veterans, individuals with severe Mental Illness, the Elderly and Domestic Violence are the subjects of these first 4 pieces. Future subjects include Youth Homelessness, LGBT issues, Family Homelessness and many more!
After the exhibit at the Albin Polasek Museum, these four creations will serve as a mobile Homeless Awareness Campaign that will tour from city to city to highlight the issues related to homelessness. Skid Robot will be creating more pieces to add to the mobile display, doing a live painting exhibition in each city!
