Rossi 5 Draws Huge Crowd
Event Center had a line of young art enthusiasts wrapped
around the building for the 5th installation of the annual
art show known as Rossi. Jason Young of YBFS (which stands
for "Your Boyfriend's Stylist") organized the popular event
which was previously held at The Truth Gallery. This
eclectic arts and entertainment party, promoting
African-American talents, took place on Sunday, May 27.
Paintings for purchase from up and coming talents, such as
Strokes of Kay, Shawn Strong and Love Lee, adorned the walls
of the hall. Rossi fan favorite, Darius Simpson, also
displayed his original works.
Hosted by Tiara Roberts and Ray Cash, Rossi 5 drew a crowd
of over 1,000 attendees this year. The show featured
performances from songstress Jasmine Renee, rapper Hannibal
and Toledo native turned New Yorker, Falease Sophae, who
flew in town just for the event.
