June’s event with JC Rivera was held at the beautiful Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts in Hyde Park. In addition to hearing JC’s wisdom on June’s theme of Survival, attendees got to collaborate with the Bear Champ artist on canvases prior to his presentation. Later, everyone in attendance had a chance to win one of the canvases. 

Making June’s event extra special, we were also joined by students and instructors from After School Matters and Chicago Public Schools Career and Technical Education.
