ARTSCAPE 2015

  • 74 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Artscape, one may ponder what this word means? Simply put it’s an annual festival that began in 1982 and has become the largest arts festival of its kind in the U.S., hosting over 400,000 visitors over a 3-day period. It’s held in Baltimore’s Cultural Center, a 14 square block area in the center of the city with both indoor and outdoor venues to support this mega event. This festival boast international to local genres of visual arts, multi-media, opera, theater, film, dance, food vendors, carnival rides, comedy, music, and most any thing to do with the expression of the arts and has an annual economic impact on Baltimore City of approximately $26 million. One major source of musical entertainment was held at Artscape’s Main Stage, where singer, songwriter, music producer, and funk bandleader, George Clinton appeared with Parliament Funkadelic, to what seemed like a human sea of adoring fans. The band electrified the hot mid summer air with old school style hip funk music, which drove fans to dancing, screaming, and yelling. This is what happens when Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic hit the stage a “hot soul dish” of happy times is served. Sides include the band’s magnificent costumes colored like fire works, insane beats, crazy volume and energy as hot as a nuclear power plant meltdown. If you lived during the 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s you were time warped and didn’t want to ever leave the groove. If not you were converted as new fan, faster than an alien mother ship coming to beaming you on board. Yes, it was time to meet the entity behind the bug-eyed glasses, because this concert was one for the record books, and Baltimore got this amazing experience all at the amazing admission price of absolutely zero dollars.April Sampe put on a fabulous show Sunday at Artscape. Sitting down with her after her show, I received the blessing of her personal account of her long journey to become the singer, songwriter, and performance artist that she’s evolved into. With the help of her best friend Gary Groove, the group’s musical director and base guitar player, she stayed the course. The soft-spoken diva, talked fondly of her parents playing jazz and gospel music in her childhood home in Prince George’s County. They allowed and encouraged her creativity to flow. She stated that at age five she was singing and creating her own songs; I certainly can see that she was onto something special. I witnessed what was as cozy as a slow jazz song, with a glass of good wine and as soulfully rich and spicy as a Creole bowl of red beans and rice. She has a fresh bluesy sound that emits a message, which inspires self-love, a zeal for life and the beauty of it. Sampe is classy and thoughtful, stating that there should be an Artscape in every major city, for youth because they need and want to see art expressed.On Sunday Evening Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue performed at Baltimore’s Artscape. Troy Andrews, aka Trombone Shorty, a trombone and trumpet player from New Orleans, LA, was certainly up to the task of making his horn talk. He and his band had the main stage area packed and most people danced from start to finish. When speaking with Trombone Shorty, he stated that he enjoys bringing that hip funk sound to his performance. He went on to state that he loved Baltimore and the energy of the audience and it felt like home. “I wanted to give that same energy back”, he exclaimed. Shorty stopped to speak with several children, who were waiting to greet him as he was leaving building. He encouraged many by signing autographs, giving verbal harmonic pointers to scale sounds when playing, and telling their parents about the Trombone Shorty Foundation. The Foundation provides mentorship to youth and professional assistance for underserved musicians for success in music and in life.

Real Men Feel

  • Real Men Feel Lolita A. Kelson, author of It’s Not Personal..It’s Penis, hosted a book signing and a male panel discussion at Coppin State University on June 2, 2015. She gave people who have heard of her book and passerby’s a chance to ask questions in regards to her findings. Though the book is pro-male, it does not bash women in the slightest. The book takes an in-depth look at what may cause issues in a relationship when women deal with men. Some of her chapter titles though male heavy, express the true thoughts men might be unwilling or afraid to share. Titles such as He Hurts When, You Get ChangeFrom A Dollar.. Not From A Man…He Is Who He Is, as well as When Loving Her Is Killing Him. If you haven’t already gone to itsnotpersonal.net to order you book, you should do so now. It’s a great summer read!!
