The Art of Reggae exhibition returns to Liverpool this June
Following the huge success of last year’s exhibition, The Art of Reggae will be returning to Constellations in The Baltic Triangle from 7th June to 9th July.
The exhibition, a collaboration between the International Reggae Poster Contest and Positive Vibration, will showcase 100 reggae-inspired posters designed by artists & illustrators from all over the world.
Visitors will be able to bid on any of the framed posters by way of a silent auction and all profits from the sales will be donated to the Alpha Boys School – the vocational institution for underprivileged youths located in Kingston, Jamaica.
