The theme of the event was “Express Yourself, Unity and Education through Self Expression.” The event together was an effort to stress the importance of art in education and self-expression.

On hand to greet the artists were Charisse Bremond-Weaver, President and CEO of the Brotherhood Crusade and Senator Curren Price (D-26). The art event featured five different artists at two sessions: from 10:00am-12:00pm. Each session showcased the five artists expressing different styles of art. One of them even created two pieces of his work in the presence of the audience within a 10-minute time frame at the end of every session followed by workshops where creative minds were allowed to create their own work of art. It was a fun and positive experience for all who attended.
