ARISE Event, by Justin Arnold


Arise is an all arts event that will incorporate an art showing, live art, poetry, and music. This event will feature local artists from throughout the Lehigh Valley to display and share their gifts and passions with the community. This event will be partnering with an organization called The VAST (Valley Against Sex Trafficking) Coalition in order to raise awareness and support to fight human trafficking in the Valley. We have a vision to bring the community together to fight a horrific reality that people may not be aware of.

Live pieces will be done by the top two finalists in the Lehigh Valley Art Wars; Justin Stewart and Samo Jo, along with a few others.
