From Meeting The Future to Flowing on Stage

Meeting Journalism Students

For artist JaFleu, last week went from 0 to 100 real quick. Beginning with meeting with a youth group from Urgent, Inc's F.A.C.E Journalism Institute. Michelle Hollinger, the publisher of The Sistahood arranged for the students to meet with JaFleu the day before the closing of the All Eyez On FLEU solo exhibition for a private viewing where they could pick his mind.

As the young inquiring minds examined the artwork, they delivered hard hitting questions that stemmed beyond "What inspires you?".

Questions that went to touch on subjects of representation in art, the artist's role in today's society and much more.  As Michelle streamed live  the experience on facebook questions poured in. It was an beautifully intimate time. A perfect way of closing the exhibition.

The Norton

Later on that same day, Visualist & JaFleu attended Art After Dark at The Norton Museum of Art. Sitting to listen and support Street Art Revolution's panel it was an pleasant surprised to see the work they participated in earlier this year as well as their names come on the screen.


And of course what better way to end the week than performing at  The Broward Center of Performing Arts  as one of the featured spoken word artists at this summer's Flo'pocalypse. An honor JaFleu plans to never let down.

An experience to never be forgotten from rehearsals, to behind the stage last minute practicing in the mirror to taking the stage and leaving it all there.
