Local CHS 270 Student to Host Arts Festival to Inspire Entrepreneurship

Philadelphia, PA January 6, 2014 – When Jasmine Anderson, Kourtney Fullard and a group of teenagers met in High School, they formed a bond that went beyond school – they became family.  After graduating from Central in 2011, the girls went in different directions;  Jasmine to Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Kourtney to SUNY Purchase College in White Plains, NY, but their bond never weakened.

Jasmine, a Business Administration major and aspiring Entrepreneur,  took her passion for fashion and  craving for saving and parlayed it into a business venture -  an online Vintage Boutique called “Mary Jane’s Closet," which she operates and curates alongside photographer, Khadijah Hope-Moore, who is also a Philly native.

“I took inventory of the people that I know.  The people who support my online boutique.  I wanted to host an event that would show my appreciation and allow my friends to showcase their many talents.  I have friends who are artists, performers and designers.  I figured why not bring them all together and showcase all this young talent right here in the city of my birth. “

That’s exactly what will take place on Friday, January 10th, 2014 from 6pm – 8pm.  Mary Jane’s Closet will host The Melting Pot Art Expo at 417 N. 8th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123.

“The showcase will display all mediums of art including fashion designs, artwork and performances.  And who better to open the night’s activities than my friend Kourtney, who is a blogger, poet and artist. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. The night will be filled with Philly's best, who may not have been given the chance to display their talent."

All participants are young and upcoming artists.  This event is open to the public. Admission is $5 and Dressy-Casual Attire is required.
