About the Exhibit:
Along with promoting networking through art, the Urban Art Exhibit also believes in taking responsibility to educate. Bullying is a prevalent issue throughout schools not only in our community, but all over the country as well. We believe that most Bullies and those that have been bullied often experience these behaviors due to low self-esteem. Bullies often bully others to boost feel good about themselves mean while those who a bullied lack self-esteem or confidence to stand up to their bullies. Through information about anti bullying programs and organizations like Dream Support Network we intend to engage others to join us in becoming part of the solution to this issue.
