In 2015, Arrington “Ace” West recruited Muzae Sesay, Lenworth "Joonbug" McIntosh , Mike Covington, and Chris Martin for a group art show in October 2015 and invited 13 more artists for the second group show held a year later .  

In January 2017, the founding members of the collective needed help and requested some of the artist from the group show and enlisted friends, Yetunde OlagbajuSoleil Summer, Jaleesa Rosario, Adrian Walker, Wardell McNeal, Yoni Asega  and Jared Mitchell that shared the same vision to inspire their creative and social communities.
