Each artist addressed the audience and talked about art and how it reflects their individual identity as a Jew, a Sikh woman, a Latino woman or an African American man.

Standing between two portraits of her brother, a cardiologist, one wearing a black turban and one with his long hair cascading down his shoulders, she explained why she chose to paint these two portraits.

Even students who receive a good education and high GPAs aren’t prepared for what awaits them after college — a competitive job market, on-the-job bullies, life on a budget, work-life balance strains, social media fallouts, relationship turbulence, excessive stress, and so much more of what makes up every day real life.
