Humble Beauty: Skid Row Artists

About This Episode


Humble Beauty: Skid Row Artists documents the ability of art to calm, inspire, ask questions or provide answers, and even help forge entirely new identities. The documentary follows a group of talented homeless and formerly homeless artists from the area of Los Angeles known as Skid Row, reportedly home to the largest concentration of indigent people in the United States. For four years, the filmmakers chronicled spontaneous moments from the artists' lives, captured intimate interviews and charted the evolution of their artwork.

Humble Beauty highlights how this tight-knit Skid Row community nourishes these artists and helps imbue their lives with meaning.
