"Why do we create? Some might argue that our need to delve into our imaginations dwindles as we reach maturity. Perhaps, it does, but why must it? Why must we subscribe to ideologies that insist that we must exist in a specific way rather than living in whatever feels right to us as long as we are not blockading another's wellness?

On this night, the landscape of our imaginations will be decorated by the artwork of featured artist Fidel Verdin coupled with performances given by dope local musicians and spoken word artists. Refreshments will be available. Come exist in the presence of other like-minded creatives for a few hours on this night to be enraptured by their creativity as well as be inspired to create yourselves.

Original artwork will be for sale as well as the Genre: Urban Arts No. 4 Print. If you are an arts supporter, we expect to have you in attendance.

The event is hosted by Genre: Urban Arts (GenreUrbanArts.com) and Woodland Pattern Book Center.

Genre: Urban Arts is a platform where artists can become published digitally and in print. Genre: Urban Arts also provides exhibiting and performing opportunities for visual and performance artists via pop-up galleries."
