About three years ago Trenton artist S. Bola Okoya, known professionally as Primo Supremo, wanted to give Trentonians an artists to show off and develop their work. To accomplish this he created the Six-Oh-Nine Project to help develop and showcase local artists.
The group wanted more than just an online presence, so they began hosting photo walks and pop-up galleries around the city. They have held five to date with the next one debuting at Artworks Trenton as part of Art All Day and will run through the month of November.
The exhibit debuting is known as FACT which stands for Future Artists and Creators of Trenton. The exhibit is the product of a 12-week course in which S.Bola worked with a group of Trenton high school students to give them the opportunity to learn photography and show their work. The program taught students to use photography to tell their individual stories.
The exhibit will debut as part of Art All Day but be on display at Artworks Trenton throughout the month of November.
