I was honored to be able to meet with a great group of people making a difference in the lives of young men and women through art.
"The exhibit is a collection of Superheroes created by Philadelphia youth from across ENPYSC and SEPC Agencies. These youth came together this past summer to develop their artistic and creative skills and to help pilot the development of a community-based, high school credit earning graphic arts program for out of school youth. Their artwork and the conceptual frameworks for community/school partnerships fostering high quality, outcomes driven community programming will be on display January 8 – January 29 at Ryan John Art Salon located at 1050 N. Hancock St, Studio 51 (The Piazza in Northern Liberties)."
Executive Director of ENPYSC (The Eastern North Philadelphia Youth Services Coalition) Eugenio Longoria Sáenz. My brief introduction and conversation with him proved that he is a man with a great sense of humor.
Carlos Cartagena is the "Tech" guy as he referred to himself as. He stated that everyone usually comes together within the organization to make this type of event a successful one. As they say, there is no "I" in team work and this event has proven to be highly successful.
Christina Martin as seen here is assisting with the sales of the comic books. She was very warm, friendly, and helpful. Another great personality within a great organization.
