The Exhibition will take place April 5 – 11, 2016 at the Art Directors Club, 106 West 29th Street, New York City. The event is free and open to the public. The sole purpose of the Positive Exposure Pop-Up Center is to network and be inspired by the amazing programs and advocacy efforts happening all around us.
