Recently, I attended Maxwell’s Concert. It was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Not only was his performance phenomenal, but it was also apparent that there was a lot of thought behind the “atmosphere” in the arena. The feeling was very ephemeral, which is similar to the sound of Maxwell’s music. Although most of the songs were slow, the audience was enthralled. Not only did Maxwell give a great performance but other great artists, Chrisette Michele, Common, and Bilal, graced the stage as well.

Kara Walker is an African American artist who was born in 1969. She received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Much of Walker’s work revolves around the themes of desire and shame, exchanges of power, racial representations, fact versus fiction, and humor. Her work is so influential because it is eye catching due to the child like qualities of the work, yet horrifying once it becomes apparent what the story is that is being told .
