Express Yourself Exhibition, Alive! 2018 features set designs and artwork from the performance at the Boch Center Wang Theater on May 31, 2018.  This year’s set design featured an exciting array of artwork, including costumes inspired by contemporary artist Nick Cave, large Picasso portraits, and an immersive tropical arboretum.  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.
