The Crocker Club presented The Divine 9 Black Greek Art Show that was hosted by Damn Good Nu Dynasty, of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. Delta Gamma & Nu Delta Chapters. The Divine 9 themed art from Divine 9 artists was on display during The Downtown Art Walk.
The Brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. displayed its art at Upscale event to commence directly with downtown LA art walk. Folks wore their perspective paraphernalia to represent their organizations. They had open mic from 6-8 with performances from Poets Ezekiel Azomwu and Dominic “Nerd” McDonald as well as live performances from two of LA’s best up and coming artists, Prince Kofi and Larisse Epps. It was a great way to bring all 9 together and allow for other Art enthusiasts to be exposed to our art.
Many of The Downtown Art Walk activities take shape in and around the galleries predominantly on Spring and Main streets between 2nd and 9th streets. However, there was a plethora of art related events and openings, activities, and special programming that take place all over Downtown. For your next visit if you are true art buyer and fan, arriving early offers a more relaxing stroll through the different galleries and art exhibits. As the evening progresses, more visitors descend on the area to meet up with friends and savor the local experience. Visitors and local Downtowners can often be found patronizing the outcropping of local shopping, dining and entertainment establishments that have created the thriving, vibrant community.
It just goes to show you that you don’t have to create the wheel, just find the one that fits you and give it a whirl. What will you align yourself with next to allow for extraordinaire event?
