Join us for the opening night celebration of Fortitude - a poster exhibition - and witness the collaborative power of art and soccer. The exhibition preview will feature more than 50 original art pieces from some of America’s most influential creatives. Each playful art piece promotes a motif related to soccer, teamwork, passion, dedication, determination, and discipline.
All proceeds will go to the Ucal McKenzie Breakaway Foundation, which provides nutrition and cutting-edge health education to more than 1,200 Boston urban youth and families through soccer, the world’s most popular sport.
