Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Youngblood is back in town! And you know what that means don’t ya? Yup, you guessed it! A kick ass art show/ NWSA family reunion/fundraiser. And this year, the Flagler Arts Space is playing host.
In short, Youngblood is the brainchild of artist Michelle Gomez, herself a New World School of the Arts alum, established in 2008 as a way to showcase work from both the college and high school graduates while also working to bring in some funds to support the nationally recognized art school in providing materials to all those in her graces. This year, in celebration of NWSA’s silver anniversary (think 25 years old), Youngblood will feature the work of 21 artists in Saturday (8/13) night’s show, So Fresh (cuz’ you know you’re super fly in your mid-twenties)! A percentage from all the show’s art sales will go to supporting the NWSA visual arts department. As an added bonus, consider yourselves lucky to be experiencing the “fresh” curtatorial stylings of newcomer Danae Tarragona (c/o 2008), whom (I’m sure) you’ll see much from in the future.
So come on down between 7 and 10pm (pre and/or post the Wynwood Art Walk) to let your eyes party it up with the works of our featured art stars:
Devin U. Caserta
Kandy G. Lopez
T. Eliott Mansa
Jovan Karlo Villalba
The show will be up through September 3rd. If you’re interested in a private afterhours viewing, be sure to email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org .
