***ONE NIGHT ONLY***
Before Museum's Day officially opens, we will be hosting New York Artist, Painter and Designer Khali Keyi.
Khali Keyi, an artist whose primary discipline or response is leather, will facilitate a conversation about the true beauty of African Art and its tremendous power to heal. A healing that occurs through the actual process of creating as opposed to the final product: "the art" itself. Khali, who resides in New York, will be visiting the Sacramento area during the month of February.
Khali believes that being an artist is a gift and a calling that should be shared and used to serve others. He has conducted numerous workshops titled “Every Thing Connects” as an Artist-in-Residence in Louisville, Kentucky; Lebanon Junction Public School in Kentucky; Jackson-Hole, Cody, & Casper, Wyoming; and Baltimore, Maryland. His art pieces will be available for purchase.
