Start of 2014 SPARKBOOM™ Season a Success

A night of artistry, free craft beer and sandwiches was enjoyed by the more than 400 attendees of the SPARKBOOM™ kickoff event on Saturday June 21st. Those who attended the event had the chance to view works from more than 30 artists, listen to live music from acts such as the Tom Moran Band who are seen performing in the SPARKBOOM™ event recap video above, and hear from spoken word poets such as Steven T Licardi who was also the host of Saturday night’s festivities. Beautiful weather, amazing work, and complimentary beer and sandwiches from Saint James Brewery and Batata Café all helped to contribute to the success of the nonprofit’s first event of the season.
