Adult art workshop with Angel Suarez-Rosado
Shrine for the Black Madonna
Legendary artist, poet, activist, writer, and art collector Danny Simmons (full bio below) comes to the Allentown Art Museum! With his artwork and latest volume of poetry, The Return of 2 Dick Willie, he brings a unique evening of poetry, music, and visual art (adult content, book signing to follow). Ursula Rucker, one of the architects of Philadelphia’s poetic revival, has transfixed audiences from Tokyo to Capetown. She has worked alongside the likes of Gil Scott-Heron, Mos Def, Macy Gray, and the late great Nina Simone. Shrine for the Black Madonna, featuring Brian Tate, has been described by Vernon Reid, the founder/guitarist, of Living Colour, as the Next Sound of Rock. The band mixes furiously seductive acid-pop with bursts of dub, African metal, soul, and more, listen here.
