Art From the Streets: Off the Streets and on Your Walls
Art helps, and the annual Art From the Streets Show and Sale helps artists who are homeless sell the work they've created and help themselves
Arts Story  November 4, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...For the person who acquires it, it helps recharge the spirit through a vision of life rendered in line, color, texture. And sometimes it even helps artists get off the streets and into a place of their own...."

Art From the Streets: Taste the rainbow of flavors
What makes the annual "Art From the Streets" exhibition and sale interesting is the way it shows not how different homeless people are from us, but how much we all have in common
Arts Story  November 10, 2006, by Rachel Koper
"...What is an artist? What is the artist's intention? These two short questions apply directly to the two-day "Art From the Streets" exhibition and sale put on by Austin Resource Center for the Homeless. Each year, volunteers work hard to provide painting supplies, matting materials, frames, photos, and exhibition space so people who are homeless have a chance to show off their artistic talents, interact with their fellow Austinites, and raise money to pay for necessities such as food, clothing, and housing..."

"ART for All + ALL for Art" at Art for the People Gallery
Truth is one of the rewards of this showing of work by artists who have lived on the streets
Arts Review  March 30, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Truth is one of the rewards of "ART for All + ALL for Art," a collection of untitled work by "homeless and formerly homeless" artists in collaboration with Art From the Streets. There is some danger, when talking about a show like this one, of superficial idealism or even primitivism..."

Movies From the Mount
Sundance Film Festival
Screens Story  February 6, 1998, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Toward that end, the shuttle bus transportation system that ferries filmgoers back and forth between venues was also amped up, and the festival headquarters were relocated from the picturesque but insufferably congested Main Street. Perhaps the year's most radical difference involved the addition of a new 1,300-seat auditorium (attached to the local high school) that, size-wise, is unprecedented for Park City in its ability to house large numbers of people and also responsible for keeping at least 1,000 extra bodies off the streets and shuttles at any given moment and indoors within a brand new theatre watching movies..."

"...Steven Spielberg gained major attention with Jaws (1975), followed by Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but the jury was still very much out as to just how ambitious a director he was after the critical and commercial failure of 1941 (1979). Martin Scorsese's record was impressive, with Mean Streets (1973), Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974), Taxi Driver (1976), New York, New York (1977), and The Last Waltz (1978), but none was a major commercial hit, and his recognition was more by critics than by the public...."

At Home at the Easel, If Nowhere Else
A new documentary captures Austin's homeless population finding purpose in art
Screens Story  November 7, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Now, this isn't generally the kind of information people look for from a night out at the movies, and no one would fault you for choosing to stay far away from any film that was only out to spread those kinds of statistics around. But while Austin filmmaker Layton Blaylock's directorial debut, Art From the Streets, doesn't shy away from the cold truths about the homeless epidemic, its aim isn't to depress or lecture but rather to point out a small but significant bright side to all the misery...."

Reclaiming 'The Corner'
Neighbors, police, and prosecutors applaud the 'Drug Market Intervention' at 12th and Chicon
News Story  September 20, 2013, by Jordan Smith
"...But action at The Corner has never entirely confined itself to that specific intersection, and has long spilled over into the surrounding neighborhoods – onto New York Ave­nue to the south, Poquito and Alamo Streets to the east, East 14th to the north, and, intensely, west onto Salina Street. For years Bard dealt with the crime, which would wax and wane, but never disappear – and at times greatly intensify...."

The Wolf of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese's latest take on the American hoodlum is a relentlessly wild ride.

Film Review  December 20, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The Wolf of Wall Street is Martin Scorsese’s latest take on the American hoodlum, a species the filmmaker returns to time and again in films such as Mean Streets, GoodFellas, Casino, and Gangs of New York. Here the thugs wield not guns and cudgels but telephones and the art of the hard sell to fleece victims from their money, sure as any lowlife pickpocket..."

"...This convergence of “underground art” types on the town, which supports a burgeoning art scene, but also has a Dairy Queen and cops who wear cowboy boots and ten-gallon hats, presented a great social experiment.

Behind the Curtain
The Texas Documentary Tour: Amy Grappell's 'Light From the East'
Screens Story  July 8, 2005, by Anne S. Lewis
"...As the American troupe finds itself trapped in the middle of a political coup, Grappell recalls being struck by "how removed Americans are from the immediacy of political events, the harsh realities of war and revolution." They decide not to take the advice of the American embassy and leave, but instead to stay the course: The show will go on. "There was an added element of danger and risk," Grappell explains, "but I primarily saw the unexpected events that unfolded as an opportunity to capture something immediate and historically important." Of course, now the play they're rehearsing – about the struggle for artistic expression during the Communist revolution – is mirrored by the struggle going on in the streets outside, as that same Communist regime is crumbling..."

Years of the Dead
The Mexico of now, David Garza writes, is not held only within the borders of Mexico itself. It has spread northward, re-entered its old space, in a sense. For so many of the Mexicans, displaced but still infatuated with the idea of spirit and ghost, the nation itself is a ghost in the back of the head.

Mike Osborne: Man of the Moment
Photographer Mike Osborne is looking for the bigger picture in the world we share
Arts Story  June 9, 2016, by Sean L. Malin
"...If you didn't know, the properties on the Monopoly game board as popularized in the Thirties were named for the streets of Atlantic City, N.J., and it was Osborne's idea to visit the byways from which those names were drawn to see what they might say about the city today. "Atlantic City is this iconic place from the East Coast," says the San Antonio native, "but coming from Texas, I was completely divorced from its historical legacy." He discovered John McPhee's 1972 New Yorker essay, "The Search for Marvin Gardens," which details the unlikely development of America's Favorite Playground, and was struck by the history therein, including such fascinating trivia as the fact that Atlantic City's layout was invented on the back of a napkin..."

The Journey of a Gun
Gun traveled circuitous path to Kevin Brown's hands
News Story  October 5, 2007, by Jordan Smith
"...These numbers may seem relatively modest in a city of 700,000 people, but to law-enforcement officers, they're significant: "Guns are used to commit crimes against persons," says APD Chief Art Acevedo. "And let's face it, when there's a firearm involved, there is always the risk of death or serious bodily injury." Police routinely structure their work around "strategic enforcement initiatives" – gang, drug, or driving-while-intoxicated enforcement units – and so it follows that police would contemplate a similar approach to removing guns from the streets and away from prohibited persons..."

"...Seems like the rule in Hollywood is that if you're searching for the Holy Grail, director Terry Gilliam is the man to call. The Fisher King is a fanciful spiral of mythology, madness, cynicism and salvation in which a Red Knight on a fiery white steed pursues a homeless lunatic through the streets of modern Manhattan, a once-imperious king of the New York air waves serves a drunken penance for his flippant arrogance, and turreted castles loom over the rush-hour pedestrians while the Grand Central Station concourse becomes an enchanted ballroom for commuters..."
