LOS ANGELES, CA – The Inner Circle Youth Programs (ICY) in Watts is grooming a new generation of young artists. Established artists such as Lili Bernard, Amanda Ferrell-Hale & Jose Lozano, will display their artworks next to art created by the young people from the Inner Circle Youth Program (ICY) in Watts.

The youth are up and coming young artist living in the community of Watts, participating in ICY at their green dot schools. These talented young artists will have a chance to look beyond their individual circumstances and see what opportunities are available to them if they continue to pursue their dreams and hone their skills.

ICY Director Sheila Lewis has worked diligently to make sure the young people in her program are encouraged to envision a life with no limits. Helping their students reach their full potential is their goal with programs such as visual art, glass blowing, culinary presentation and preparation, ceramics , music, and dance.

Students and established artists will share the walls of the WLCAC Cecil Fergerson Gallery, for an art showing unlike any other in Los Angeles. The evening will consist of red carpet arrivals, an opening reception, food, live airbrushing, and music.

I ask that you support this cultural event and help change the lives of these young artists. We need photographers to shoot the red carpet, writers to interview the artists, and art enthusiast to come out and support this very important event.
