Join Us for an Inspiring Art Show on July 20!

We’re excited to invite you to a special event showcasing the incredible talent of young artists from DC’s Wards 7 and 8. On Saturday, July 20, from 12:00 – 2:00pm, the CREATE Arts Center in Downtown Silver Spring, MD, will host the Life Pieces To Masterpieces Art Show. This event is a celebration of creativity, mentorship, and community, highlighting the transformative power of art.

 

 

Life Pieces To Masterpieces is a community-based arts organization dedicated to serving Black and Brown boys from some of the most underserved neighborhoods in the American capital. Our unique, signature art process involves participants channeling their life experiences into vibrant, acrylic-painted scraps of canvas that are sewn into colorful collages. These creations are not just artworks; they are powerful metaphors for turning “life pieces” into “masterpieces.”

A Collaborative and Mentorship-Driven Approach

Our program emphasizes collaboration and mentorship. Older youth mentors guide younger peers through discussions and preliminary sketches based on shared experiences. Together, they paint, cut, and sew scraps of canvas into cohesive pieces. Each artwork is accompanied by a story or poem, adding a personal narrative that enriches the visual experience.

Why You Should Attend

This art show is more than just an exhibition; it’s an opportunity to witness these young artists’ resilience, creativity, and community spirit. By attending, you’ll support their journey and gain insight into the transformative impact of our program.
