Nonprofit organization Lamp Village helps people with severe mental illness move from the streets to homes, offering services to anyone who walks through their doors. Lamp also provides a communal art studio for members to paint and express themselves through art. UCLA Lamp intern Kate Viernes and Lamp member Mykael Wolf discuss skid row and the impacts of art on the homeless community.
