LeRoi C. Johnson Art Project program

Greetings District Community,


You are cordially invited to the Culminating Celebration of our scholars who participated in the 5-week LeRoi C. Johnson Art Project program. The culmination will consist of a luncheon catered by “Manna” at NWTC. We would like you to have a sneak preview of the finished products created by our scholars with the help of internationally renowned artist Leroi C. Johnson and phenomenal artist, Mr. Jay P. Hawkins. Their creations will go alongside Mr. Johnson’s installation titled LEROI: Living in Color, at the Burchfield-Penney Art Center in November of this year. What a tremendous opportunity for our scholars to have their artwork featured at such a prestigious institution this fall. We want to celebrate this grand accomplishment and momentous occasion with you on Friday, August 12th at 11:30am -1:00pm, at Northland Workforce Training Center Community Room, located at 683 Northland Ave, Buffalo, NY 14211.  


We look forward to seeing District community and family members there to support and congratulate our scholars on Friday, August 12th, 2022.  Thank you again for your support of the Office of CLRI and the LeRoi C. Johnson Art Healing Space program. 


Thank you,

Dr. Morrell
