's Color Squad program celebrates its annual zine release at ICOSA
Each year, Color Squad teen artists create a zine that reflects a yearly theme to allow space for each member to reflect on their personal exploration of the topic before creating a mural at the end of the school year.
This year's theme focuses on LGBTQIA+ advocacy, and the zine, «You Are Valid: The Journey of Self-Discovery,» features artwork responding to the journey of self-empowerment and discovery and the topic of identity, and its validation or lack thereof.
Join us to celebrate the work’s release and meet the artists, all while sipping delicious, rainbow-themed mocktails and partaking in identity-related arts activities. Please RSVP via the link above to give an accurate headcount for the event.
Proceeds of the zine sale will benefit Kind Clinic
, two local, pro-LGBTQIA+ organizations.
