Local artist Ke’Monte’ Figgs explored new practices, projects and ways to engage with the community as one of Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s 2022 Vibrancy Fellow. The fellowship is a five-month residency for emerging BIPOC artists.
At the conclusion of this experience, Ke’Monte’ is presenting an exhibition of new work created as well as a glimpse into their process.
Ke’Monte’ Figgs is displaying his journey as a Black children’s author and illustrator in “The Black Dr. Seuss.” Along with a small selection of original paintings from his first book Dreams, Art, and Success, which launched in Fall 2022, there will be that book’s new theme song audio in progress. Also on view will be a series of sketches of character develop and storyboarding for his next book The Big Jumbo Baby, along with a few original paintings of this second book.
Join us in celebrating at the Closing Reception on Thursday, February 16 from 6-8pm. Ke’Monte’ will be reading his books starting at 7:00pm. This is the last day of the show.
Gallery hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 12-5pm and by appointment (call 513-631-4278 to make arrangements).
