The event officially started at 12.30 pm with a speech by the president of APAC itself; Hanna Lee. In the speech, she welcomed everyone who came and explained the purpose of exhibition itself. After that, she began to introduce all the contributors of the exhibition and invite them for a 3-minute speech about the art itself. Some of the highlight of the speech was the story about a girl who is a quarter Japanese and all African who participate Purdue's Miss Asian Competition and also the case of a Korean Student who came to America when he was young and having a problem acknowledging his own identity either as an American or Korean. Aoi's Love Diary was primarily chosen due to its plot of interchange student who have problem communicating with the local student which the problem commonly address by the international student at Purdue.

The event then continue to the open exhibition where the guest can walk to see the displayed artwork and involved in the activity offered mainly the identity card. The identity card is basically a project done by Michelle Norris. The project is basically writing six word that represent your races (identity in term of the exhibition) and explained why do you acknowledge yourself as that. On the exhibition, the guest has the chance to directly write it and put it on the wall of identity.

Despite the exhibition go on from Wednesday to Friday, we only able to attend on the first day due to heavy weather on the second day and busy schedule on the third day. However, Art Voice Exhibition manages to open a wider door for Comikrew Studio as this act as the first step to go bigger and involved more in other art exhibition.
