It is open to artists of all mediums seeking to share their creative energy and unique perspective. All generations of the Urban Word community, past, present and future, are invited to share their voices, ideas and wisdom.

Immerse: Art Exhibit is redefining the artistic experience. This is a public event that catapults the attendee into an immersive visual and performance art environment. The exhibit features contemporary art as well as live performances hand picked from the N.Y.C. area. As the viewer engages visual installations, a vast modicum of performance art becomes the backdrop or focal point creating a unique experience for each individual. As the Exhibit is called live a cycle of curated focal pieces is introduced while a live D.J. ties the night together.
