Voices of the City is a collaborative group show giving stage to the collective perspectives of the ever-evolving artist community as they filter the world through their passion and exuberance. This pop-up show will feature artists of varying levels to create an impactful message; one voice that speaks up against current social issues such as bullying, child separation, immigrant issues, cultural divides, racism; its many forms, and many other challenges plaguing communities all over our city and country. We challenge viewers to look at the world around them through the eyes of an Artist and the impact these things have had on communities, families, and children. The night will culminate in a spectacular art exhibition with Live poetry and music. The event will integrate students from Essex County Donald M. Payne Sr. Tech HS in the fields of culinary arts, film/television, and the jazz ensemble will provide the “soundtrack” for the reception. www.essextech.org/donald-m-payne-tech/
