Brown Rice Family is today’s freshest world roots band jamming towards global solidarity and organic happiness.


Michèle Voltaire Marcelin

Poet, writer, painter and actor. Maya Angelou has praised her poems as ‘stunning’ and Edwidge Danticat found them incandescent and lyrical.


Installation Art by Engels

His use of found objects and meshing of movement and medium yield abstract work that evokes ideas of memory and spirituality. On view from May 17 – June 30, this installation was created for Selebrasyon! with the support of HCX.
