On September 11 2011, artist Nzingah Oniwosan held a workshop  at  Sailboat Bend Artists Community for artists in the tri-county area (West Palm, Broward, and Dade) to paint Converse shoes for Sole Plus.

Sole Plus is a non-profit organization that provides shoes for those in need as well as raise money, provide workshops, awareness, and focus on art as a tool for social activism. They hold contests for various groups and has a strong basis in philanthropy.

Each participant artist was given a pair of Converse sneakers to decorate. These sneakers will be in a silent auction next month and 50% will go to Sole Plus for future workshops, homeless shoe donations, youth design workshops ,and more in the South Florida area. The minimum bid will be $50.

Auction will take place at The Green Room date TBA
