ArtLifting is a benefit corporation that provides homeless and disabled artists the opportunity to earn their own income. ArtLifting sells original paintings, art prints, and products so artists can earn recurring income from each piece. Artists earn 55% of the profit from each sale. Liz Powers, founder, has worked with homeless and disabled individuals in Boston since she was eighteen. After creating and running art groups in local women’s shelters, Liz was amazed by the talent around her, but noticed that much of the art would end up in the trash can or lost in the shelters’ closets. After observing the same problem at other local art programs, Liz and her brother Spencer created ArtLifting. By earning an income, instead of a handout, the artists feel empowered and confident. This confidence has a domino effect on every aspect of their lives and helps them pursue dreams that previously seemed unreachable to them. To learn more visit http://www.artlifting.com/.
