The Diaspora Exhibition allows for a meeting of the minds between African American artists and design professionals. The exhibit’s goal is to provide these artists with both an avenue of expression and an introduction to potential patrons and resources. Invited artists are encouraged to utilize their medium of choice (graphic design, photography, painting, etc) to depict their interpretation of the black experience in America.

Popchips—2013 Product Sponsor

Naturally delicious and healthier. that’s popchips. when they said it couldn’t be done, we raised the snack bar. how do we do it? well, first, let's talk about how we don't do it. we never fry our chips. that just puts a lot of stuff in there that we could all do without. we never bake our chips either. T hat just takes a lot of flavor out, which, as snackers, we simply can't do without.
