Marva Harris: “I Know Why”

Marva’s “I Know Why” is rapidly gaining recognition. Her art and her poetry come together in a brief but powerful video covering her personal as well as our shared 2020 experiences; her work is also a Black History project that was coincidentally set to open at the end of February to honor her grandmother’s birthday – and now it’s part of Art Detour 33!

To see her virtual exhibition on the Millet House website: Just click the “I Know Why” link, above, in the Menu.

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:

On March 4, Marva will premiere a video performance with a spoken piece that ties the art together.
