Yay so I didn’t write this post two days later… Booooo I am writing it a week later. There really isn’t any excuse for it other than I have been busy at work so whatever I suck. But here is my final Art Basel posting *cues cheers*
So after meeting the incomparable Theaster Gates , Reny and I made our way to the Fusion Fashion Event benefiting Project Save Imagination (@saveandimagine). Project Save Imagination‘s goal is to help keep the arts/music in the lives of young people (especially necessary in light of the constant attacks on education budgets). That was enough to place several servalites (think: community service + socialites) in the building.
Soooo yeah I was supposed to write this yesterday….. but I was sleepy. And in reality I am really freaking sleepy right now too BUT I said I was going to write about my whole Basel experience. So here goes.
Tuesday was greeeeeeat. On the schedule was the Gentlemen Jack (@jdxus)-Art+Beats+Lyrics event. I linked up with my girl Mila who I haven’t seen in ages and she brought a group of her friends as well. You all know I am not a real people person but they were all really nice. [pause] Oh before I forget shout out to @msingridb for the info on this FREE splendiforous event. If you are into the neo-soul scene, follow her. Link up with her and check out the Bohemia Room which is the must attend for the grown and sexy, urban scene.
I am totally in love with this project. In a time when it is sometimes hard to be a proud Southerner, things like this pop up. This could be anywhere, what a beautiful idea. Next exhibit, Miami???? Atlanta??? A Lezzie Neighborhood Near You….
