Join us as we celebrate Black history with art. The Pop-up Art Exhibit:Resilience,Faith and Culture celebrates the impact of Black Americans by inviting artist of all ethnicities to share their own stories of resilience, faith and culture. During this two day event we will explore the theme with guest speakers from the Black community as well as invite some of the artist to share how their pieces reflect the theme of resilience, and culture.
This is a fundraiser. We appreciate your attendance and support.
