After months of meetings with St. Marcus Lutheran School’s development team, I am elated to finally be able to announce a partnership between St. Marcus Lutheran School & CMPerceptions LLC. to teach a 9 week course inspired by the production “Br(OK)en Genius”.
This means that the students involved in the unique program will perform at the 2014 St. Marcus Lutheran School Gala in the fashion of how Br(OK)en Genius will be presented at South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center on November 21st & 22nd.
As a community minded man, I have a great deal of love for Milwaukee. I come from the Uptown area but have spent a lot of time on the east side of Milwaukee, specifically in the Bronzeville area. Alderwoman Coggs & I have had various conversations about raising the value of this district with various artistic endeavors but I was given an opportunity to activate change at a new level due to my perception as an artist. I am a newly appointed member of the Bronzeville advisory committee at the request of Alderwoman Coggs & I look forward to seeing you during Bronzeville Week!
I will be present on August 2nd as I show support for the community, at the BMO Harris Bank Community Room located at 2745 North Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. on August 4th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. as one of four panelist who will speak about Bronzeville as well as on August 9th as Della Wells & myself will be organizing an art walk throughout various businesses within the Bronzeville district!
As a RedLine MKE Alumni, I often keep tabs on artists who come out of RedLine & I have been happy to see Jeff Redmon on the move as he is very influential in the renaissance that is Milwaukee’s art scene.
Upon receiving an email request asking if I would participate in a big, possibly controversial exhibit, I said I will surely cultivate a piece for it, my first showcased painting ever.
On July 25th, Culture Jam MKE will be taking place at the Hide House starting at 5PM where you will be sure to see something that will stir your soul as the plethora of artists involved spoke on issues in a very direct way.
I will be in attendance briefly & look forward to seeing you.
