The Inked Souls exhibit will spotlight the art of individual customization. Each invited artist will be given a pair of blank AKA Tagür sneakers to bring to life with their unique style and perspective, which ranges from urban graffiti to traditional oil on canvas, and from abstract to figurative interpretations. Their broad spectrum of chosen technique and adaptation, contrasted with the blank sneaker canvases promises to deliver an exciting look at the different artistic perceptions of these talented artists. As a part of the final exhibition, the artists will also complete a canvas piece to be exhibited above their customized sneakers so that the audience can see how they successfully bridged the gap between 2-D artistry and the third-dimension.

Among the sneakers being exhibited some of them will have an opportunity to become mass produced by Tagür which will be carried Nationwide in the Finishline retailers and Foot Action stores.  Many household name celebrities wear Tagür and support the brand.   The more support Tagür receives from consumers through purchased products, the more we can support the arts.

SOuL BaBY” was established over a decade ago by a group of native Washingtonians as a conduit to connect with friend and associates who had migrated from the Metropolitan Area and were returning home for the holidays. As lives progressed and social networks grew it became obvious that positive people traveled in the same circles. What had once just been a chance to catch up with old friends evolved into an opportunity to enjoy the many cross sections of ones life. Playing a close second fiddle to the people has always been the music. “SOuL BaBY” has always been a place to hear good music and this year will be no different. DJ Jahsonic will provide the musical backdrop for the evening, Vintage Hip-Hop, Classic Soul, Break Beats, & Reggae.

Soul Baby is free! Just bring yourself and that holiday vibe. Spread the vibe and spread the word.

See you there!
