Speak Easy: Harlem, Hosted by Kalae All Day ( February )

Speak Easy event was held in Harlem late one evening at a disclosed location. Only but a few people were invited to attend the art expression, open discussion, and reciting art dialogue with one another, with the intend to open the minds and learn from those in the art field, in our contemporary life/ life style. I was so cited to have been asked to share my art discipline with many that I already knew in the game, and many others that are new to me. ( networking was awesome ).

In the visual art team I had invited both my brothers Tomas M. Manon and my little brother Jorge, both whom I grew up with creating and developing our art expressions. In my team I also had my son Wesly, who refused to stay at home, and wanted so badly KNOW what is it that I do in some of the art nights, so I granted his curiosity wish. ( why not? my fam was with me...)

After the hour of meet and greet, and getting my art frenzy on a hallway wall, I was able to pause and listen to the introduction of the show and also many informative insights on each borough’s influence to the birth of Hip Hop.

Below you will see but a few flicks, taken by Elizabeth aka NO BODY BEATS THE LIZ on the evenings gathering. I hope you all enjoy it.

my son was so motivated to help me out, Gosh how I love him!
