9/11 Commemoration Art Benefit
Hosted By: Paris Morgan
The 9/11 Commemoration Art Benefit is a meaningful event remembering 9/11 all over again. New artworks from YRG artists will have pieces dedicated to this special event. Expect food, music, fun, and serious intellectual conversations that might change your mind on what happened that drastic day that changed the world.
Come out and hear your local Spoken Word Artists Nick Becker and Emeka give a breath taking performance, as they go through the trenches of absolute chaos, and bring us back to reality.
