Jimmy Jenkins, the 1st runner up of the 2016 BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Artisan Series, unveiled his multi-media show entitled 01 World Building on Wednesday, July 12th. The installation told a story of a re-imagined society built on acceptance with inspiration drawn from today’s pop-culture. On Thursday, July 13th People’s Choice winner Ivan Alifan presented his solo exhibit, Escape. Influenced by New York’s concrete jungle, Ivan shared with attendees that his exhibit was his personal escape to a tropical environment full of lush landscapes. Guests of the exhibition celebrated with both artists, along with Actress and Creative Mentor Rosario Dawson at the exhibits where carefully crafted cocktails were served throughout the evening (recipes below).
