Presented by MOCAH and the Art of Culture, this dynamic group of women is comprised of talented artists whose mission is to use creativity to empower others. They are donating half of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork at the event to the
youth based art programs of MOCAH.
Reginald Adams, founder of MOCAH said, “The Queens of Creativity have recognized the need for more youth in urban communities to have access and exposure to the arts. This needs is amplified as our public schools are faced with drastic funding
shortfalls which impact how the arts are reduced or eliminated in our schools.”
The exhibiting artists include MOCAH Co-Founder, Rhonda Radford Adams, Laneya Jacob, Sam Turner, Cherry Meekins, and Elisabet Gonzalez-Barranco. These women are also the original members of the Queens of Creativity and are each uniquely artistic, eclectic and inspired by the goal in mind to support the community through the arts. The QOC strive to become a
global alliance of creative professionals that use art to support outreach, community service, and professional development.
“This is an amazingly creative group of artists whose work brings awareness to issues that affect our society as a whole,” said Branden Morris, Director of the Art of Culture.
The event sponsors are Bud Light and Dripping Springs Pure Texas Vodka. Expected attendees include art enthusiasts, community leaders, political figures, friends and board members of MOCAH. For more information about MOCAH visit www.mocah.org. The event Twitter hashtag is #MOCAHQOC.
