The Second Annual San Jose Day was celebrated at Breezy Excursion. This year, we chose a select group of artists that would represent and emulate the culture of San Jose. Our previous year allowed artists to openly submit art, whereas this year each artists was asked to create an original piece that represented what San Jose meant to them.
This year featured 30 visual artists, one MC, and a documentary reveal.
