Folklife – The Artist Vibe

Friday, March 26, 2021 at 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Enjoy live music and shop directly from local artisans online with The Artist Vibe! This monthly virtual event, hosted by Tinesi Minikon, will feature one local performing artist and one local visual artist/artisan.

Featured Artist
Janelle Washington – a self-taught paper cut artist from Virginia. Her artwork explores themes of history, identity, and beauty in African American culture. Through the simplicity of paper, Janelle creates images that showcase African American’s courage, achievements, and grace in difficult situations. Through positive and negative spaces, she creates patterns, symbols, and silhouettes that work simultaneously to construct a multifaceted design. Her paper cuts retell a story of the past to current and future generations by adding a present-day perspective of empowerment and reflection.

Featured Performer
Marvillous Beats – a true renaissance musician, in all parts technical and organic. Marvillous Beats connects classical and hip-hop music, and is an invaluable member of the Laurel community. He shares a story that includes triumphing through failure, a love for family, and a passion for music production that inspires the world.

The Artist Vibe is brought to by SSM Folklife partner, FAsMarketplace.
