Chattanooga, TN – A new art gallery in Chattanooga helps homeless people create and sell artwork-sometimes enough to finally afford housing. Today we're talking to Ellen Heavilon, who started the Hart Gallery in the Southside's growing art district. She says she started the place not just because she loves fine art, but specifically to help the homeless, political refugees and other non-traditional artists.
