Faces Of Freedom 2021 Virtual Event

Transylvania Community Arts Council (TC Arts) is proud to announce that for the seventh year, the organization has partnered with community engagement entrepreneur Nicola Karesh to present Faces of Freedom. This invitational show features minority and other underrepresented artists in Transylvania County. In January 2020, the show opened to a standing-room-only crowd at the TC Arts gallery at 349 S. Caldwell St. in Brevard. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Karesh has planned a virtual event to share with the community. >>read more>>
