Congratulations go out to visual artist, Amy Sherald on being selected for the high honor of creating a portrait of former first lady, Michelle Obama! We’re honored to have had Amy creating artwork live at FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival as a part of our history!
This is a great example of what we’ve been saying for decades about the artists at FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival that create in various artistic disciplines (visual art, music, film, theater, poetry, technology, civic service, etc.)! We LOVE introducing great talents in various areas of the arts to those who can see and appreciate artistic excellence unfolding! It’s been what we’re known for since our inception in 1994!
