The Salon is happy to bring its next Pop-Up to The Artist Co-op--a new co-working space just for artists where you will feel right at home.
At this month's Salon, meet three artists who fuse their art with their activism to make their voices heard.
Richard E. Pelzer II--Executive Producer of the short film 90 DAYS
A riveting story of love, integrity, and compassion, 90 DAYS explores a beautiful couple's relationship and their life-altering decision after ninety days of dating. Fueled with gripping performances by an extraordinary cast of actors led by Teyonah Parris and Nic Few, 90 DAYS is a groundbreaking cinematic piece of art that confronts the human experience of overcoming one of life's greatest perceived challenges.
Written by Nathan Hale Williams and directed by Williams and Jennia Fredrique Aponte, the film is entertaining, authentic and a visual masterpiece. Based on a true story, 90 DAYS is a film that will touch hearts while navigating the definition of ultimate compassion. Executive Producers: Jussie Smollett, Nathan Hale Williams, Richard E. Pelzer II & Sol Aponte.
