In many ways, Saturday is a miniature of the entire guiding outlook and purpose of this annual love labor from Arts For Art.
All elements, discussion, youth support, poetry and a well sequenced array of distinct and personal performance statements are present and the stalwart Matthew Shipp Trio speaks to the element of continuity.
