Mimi Burns and William Brown see music and visual art as the most powerful form of self expression.

Lighthouse Affects is a newly launched program here in Fort Wayne, especially designed to engage and empower creative young people through artistic expression.

These interactive experiences result in producing artwork inspired by the songs of the team's featured musicians, and it all comes together this Saturday, with an evening of celebration at the University of Saint Francis' Robert Goldstein Performing Arts Center that throws a spotlight on this year's art and music.
