Café Art is a kind of what I'll call an art movement in the UK, galvanized by Paul Ryan and Michael Wongart in 2012. I found out this wonderful project today that was posted on Facebook by artist Willie Baronet.
Café Art was started by one art group a homelessness organization and one cafe. The artists all have had experience with homelessness and are given the opportunity to have their art work hung for sale in cafes.
I have become acutely aware of how this kind of art has become near and dear to my heart for many reasons, and is becoming more important to me as the years go by.
