Willie has been buying and collecting homeless signs since 1993 as part of a long-term art project titled “We Are All Homeless”. In 2014, he began a 31-day, cross-country trip to buy signs in 24 cities, and began filming a documentary about the process. This project has been featured in dozens of international and local media, including Yahoo! News, NPR-All Things Considered, The Huffington Post and Al Jazeera America. The project is about raising awareness and compassion for the homeless.
