Multitudes: Music and Poetry Inspired by Making American Artists
World Cafe Live and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) present Multitudes, a multisensory event series. Hear world premiere works from some of Philadelphia’s top performers commissioned by World Cafe Live, all inspired by PAFA’s current exhibition, Making American Artists: Stories from PAFA 1776 - 1976.
Multitudes asks five musicians and three poets to share their individual reflections of the artwork, presenting new narratives in American art history by spotlighting stories about women artists, LGBTQIA+ artists, and artists of color. The result is a highly personal and powerful illumination of what it means to be an American and an American artist today.
Opening Reception: 7:00pm
Toast this exciting new series! Enjoy complimentary wine, beer, and snacks and view the exhibition before the show begins at 8 pm.
Featured Artists: Raina Leon, Salina Kuo and the Abundance Orchestra, Kendrah Butler Waters, Kirwyn Sutherland, Devi Majeske, and ILL DOOTS*
