Painted Lyrics is an organization that provides a platform and safe space for underrepresented artists and groups to network, perform, and exemplify their creativity with other artists while giving students something fun and safe to do with their creatives. The origins came from the first ever TradeMarked (TM) and Spoken Vibes Entertainment (SVE) event being held on Kent State's campus on March 22, 2022. The event included live music, fashion, and over 50 free paintings being handed out and was shutdown before the completion of the event due to noise complaints. The organization was later founded by Malcolm Mitchell and Craig Johnson and became an official student led organization on April 18, 2022.
