The Second Chances Art Exhibit shares success stories of Career Academy graduates. Local artists go through a selection process and are paired with a Blue Jacket graduate to depict their story of trials, tribulations and triumphs through a variety of artistic mediums including acrylic paints, glass blowing, photography, sculpture and many more. These works are showcased and available for purchase on the night of the event and after. The evening is filled with delicious food, live music and incredible art. There are also opportunities to purchase inexpensive prints of each of the pieces for anywhere between $20-$60 depending on size. You will also have the chance to meet the graduates featured in the success stories and learn more about what we do here at Blue Jacket.

To learn more about this year's event, follow or like our Facebook page. We will be posting videos of the artists and the clients involved in the event every week leading up to the May 18 exhibit opening.
