Artist Evolve: Diaspora, May 13, 2016 Event Industry: Visual Arts, African-American History, Fine Arts, Music Event Announcement and Details The time has arrived again for all visual artists to step out and experience the third series of Artist Evolve: Diaspora! We are emanating, appreciating, and embracing everything that involves the diasporic culture. The African Diaspora refers to the communities throughout the world that have resulted by descent from the movement of indigenous people of Africa brought over to the Americas and other continents across the globe. Artist Evolve: Diaspora cultivates the African-American community by grasping art from its roots. If you are a visual artist who loves to sketch, paint, or practice photography, this event is especially for you! Live figure models will pose during a non- instructional drawing & photography session. Delicious Afro-Latin inspired food will be served while the DJs rotate all the sounds to keep your hips and feet moving. Come relax and enjoy the scene or evolve in your artistry, exchange with creative souls, and vibe right! Artist Evolve is held at the Mousai House, in the Union Arts building, located in Northeast Washington, D.C. The Union Arts building is threatened with displacement of artists along with inconvenient and unfortunate renovations bought out by the zoning commission. Let’s help fundraise money to keep this historic haven in the city! Artist Evolve encourages visual artists to enrich their talent with the beautiful nature of life in front of them; usually this is not an event where anyone is to showcase or sell their artwork. However, only a select few of art entrepreneurs who have supported Artist Evolve in the past will feature their work and have art for sale. Three beautiful models will each pose for one hour from 9:30-12:30 for the visually creative, so bring your paintbrush, pastels, sketchpads, pencils, cameras, and bring art to life! Chef Dani Marie Harris is going to prepare a delightful Afro-Latin cuisine with vegan-friendly options, so make sure to come with an appetite. Raven will be back for her third pop-up appearance with Black Pearl, aligning your chakras with stones and crystal jewelry. DJ Aquarian & DJ Geena Marie are gonna spin some dope tunes throughout the night with hip hop, reggae, afrobeat, and more! Are you excited yet??? ***KEY THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND***  Visual artists participating must still pay admission…no exceptions.
