Multitudes: Music and Poetry Inspired by Making American Artists
World Cafe Live and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) present Multitudes, a multisensory event series. Hear world premiere works from some of Philadelphia’s top performers commissioned by World Cafe Live, all inspired by PAFA’s current exhibition, Making American Artists.
Multitudes asks five musicians and three poets to share their individual reflections of the artwork, presenting new narratives in American art history by spotlighting stories about women artists, LGBTQIA+ artists, and artists of color. The result is a highly personal and powerful illumination of what it means to be an American and an American artist today.
*Please Note* ILL DOOTS will not be appearing live at this event; their performance will be streamed
