When the Hiplet Ballerinas of Chicago, IL get the party started at a gala, you know you’re in for an absolute treat. The MoAD Afropolitan 2017 Gala took place on October 28, 2017 at the Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco and it was outstanding as expected. Hundreds attended and more than $1M was raised towards MoAD’s goal of keeping Black Art & Culture in the City of San Francisco. It’s no secret that the African American population in San Francisco has decreased tremendously over the last 20 years, so while the people, in many cases, have …more >>

The 60th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival returns with yet another epic film line-up showing throughout San Francisco April 5 – 19, 2017. I am particularly thrilled to see many screenings are scheduled at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. While I enjoy the ‘taste of cinema’ in various venues throughout San Francisco, YBCA is an amazing space so it’s great to see SFIFF’s partnership with them this year.

Okay, here are my SFIFF 2017 film picks and I hope to see you there as well:

Kevin Sylvester and Wil Baptist have been hidden gems for a while and that will definitely change overnight. From playing on tracks by super star artist Jay Z to performing at the White House for President Barak Obama’s Inauguration, it goes without saying that the Violin and Viola will quickly become the most sought after instrument of choice to learn among children, youth and young adults. Why? Because these gentlemen have mastered the art of blending their trained classical music skills with their love of hip hop music to break society’s stereotype, and it’s only the beginning.

Y’Anad Burrell: “Fashion is beyond a passion, it’s my ‘Lifestyle’. This vast industry goes far beyond beautiful clothes and jaw-dropping accessories. It’s one of sexiest industries where style is communicated and translates across generations and cultures both verbally and with non-verbal statements. The infusion and influence that art and technology has made in the fashion industry is extremely exciting and certainly a move of the 21st Century. Over the years I’ve traveled to many runway shows both nationally and internationally, written for several publications as a Fashion Editor/Blogger, instructed at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and as the Founder & Creative Director of the largest and longest running charity fashion show on the West Coast, Fashion On The Square (FOTS), now in its 10th year, the culmination of those experience is the impetus of this column – Fashion + the Arts. Enjoy!”
