The Diasporal Rhythms "Frame Drive" collected over 70 frames for the Art Department at King College Prep High School. The school is creating a permanent art gallery at King that showcases the students’ creations.
Students of Chicago’s King College Prep High School have participated each month in Diasporal Rhythms sponsored workshops. These sessions were led by some of the well-known contemporary artists of the African Diaspora in the Chicago area. These workshops have been conducted within the classroom setting and in the artists’ studios. Diasporal Rhythms gives many thanks to the following artists for giving up their time and their willingness to share their artistic talent and expertise. The artists include: Adedayo (Dayo) Laoye, Anthony (Tony) Wade, Juarez Hawkins, Julian Williams, Dalton Brown and Ted Feaster.
Diasporal Rhythms donated more than $3500 worth of art books to M.L. King College Prep. High School. THANKS TO ALL!
