On November 18, 2017, The Art institute of California—Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University, hosted the 26th edition of Black Book Session. The event brings local artists and community members together to inspire and cultivate a positive environment to showcase artwork, music, and community.
 
In the past, Black Book Session was held in Los Angeles, but this year for the first time, the event took place on the Inland Empire campus. The event consisted of over 15 vendors, 4 live street artists, a DJ, live band, screen printing, and a community contest. 
 
Young artists between the ages of 9-23 years were able to compete in an art contest broken into age-specific categories. Prizes included art supplies and merchandise donated by participating sponsors. A student in The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire’s College Bound program won grand prize in her age group.

Black Book Session, a nonprofit organization, is the creation of artist Mural and his hybrid apparel team. Mural is a community partner of The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire and had been a guest at many events and art shows on campus.

Black Book Sessions are free events, made possible by in-kind donations of supplies, time, and financial contributions. The nonprofit has a mission to make a difference in local communities by empowering and inspiring young talent.
