National YoungArts Week 2017 concluded last weekend with Writers’ Readings by 21 of the most talented young writers from around the country, followed by the Design Arts Showcase, and the Design Arts, Photography and Visual Arts Exhibition, curated by PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans, and featuring works by our outstanding 2017 Finalists. 
On Saturday night, YoungArts supporters, guests, winners, alumni, performers, and the 2017 honorees Jason Moran and Jessica Lang celebrated YoungArts at the annual Backyard Ball, followed by the Backyard Bash after party featuring DJ Walshy Fire.
