The group show includes Black American, African, Caribbean and Japanese artists, exhibiting an eclectic and exciting array of artwork, which includes original oil and acrylic pieces on canvas and wood, framed giclee prints of watercolor, digital prints, carved wood and banana tree leaves, and functional designer wood screens. 

The purpose of the art show is to showcase inclusion, diversity and equity with artists of color in the creative world.
