Under the umbrella of the Be Open initiative which celebrates diversity and inclusion through its various ongoing projects, is the "Open Canvas." At this year's US Open the USTA and US Open brought underrepresented artists to the main stage by giving them a platform that reflects their own unique experiences through art.
Just outside of Arthur Ashe Stadium the artwork was displayed during all two weeks of the major event in Flushing Meadows. Tennis fans from around the world had the opportunity to view the beautiful exhibit and learn about each piece. Even actor Benjamin Bratt stopped by and was absolutely loving the experience.
