Marva Harris, “I Know Why”

Please attend the public opening of Marva Harris’s multimedia exhibition tonight, Thursday, March 4, 5:30-7 pm. This will be a virtual event on the Millet House Zoom!

With a background in theater and storytelling (and in mentoring young aspiring drama students), Marva has created a spoken word piece that she will release during the Zoom. The spoken word piece ties together and is illustrated by the paintings exhibited on the Millet House site, and by midnight tomorrow the text will be displayed with the appropriate images – but text is just text, so if you want to meet and hear her in person, please login between 5:30 and seven pm:
