Steve Trash Vip Theatre Experience 2018

Steve is a personal friend of ours that we met in Florence, Alabama several years ago participating in an art show. He was flabbergasted at the art Deidra made. He also liked it, that the art she makes, is on recycled material. I thought this story he sent us might be of interest to younger people interested in expressing themselves. As it ties in with what Steve does and what Deidra does. We love promoting the awareness of art in all forms.
