Express Yourself Exhibition, Soul 2017 features set designs and artwork from the performance at the Boch Center Wang Theater on May 25, 2017.  This year’s set design featured an exciting array of artwork, including portraits inspired by Soul Train, painted spirit animals, and large scale three-dimensional totem poles.  Express Yourself challenges myths surrounding young people with mental illness and at-risk youth, allowing these individuals to explore art as a path toward a healthy sense of identity, and feeling valued for their creativity.


Reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
