Creativity isn’t something only reserved for the creative department. What about letting those who actually run the businesses have a go at it, too? Art From the Unexpected is about challenging 20 of our industry’s leaders, who don’t typically get to be visually creative in their day-to-day, to create an original art piece. That’s not all. They will join us in presenting their one-of-a-kind creation to you.
What motivates these leaders to be creative? What will they create? How do they really think? How do they overcome creative challenges?

SKETCH is a community arts initiative that creates opportunities for street-involved and homeless youth aged 15-29 by offering them tools to engage in the arts, a safe place to express and create, and opportunities to creatively integrate back into community life. All proceeds from the sale of artwork benefit SKETCH.
