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:

Art Detour 33 is Here..Plus, Zoom Open House/Sneak Preview

Artist Marva Harris debuts her exhibition “I Know Why” at The Millet House on February 27, when Art Detour begins. This is one of the most important art events in the Phoenix area; and this year, the 33rd, the celebration will continue for 33 days, from February 27 to March 31.

Much about the event this year will be virtual, as will The Millet House’s entry. We have learned a great deal about the uses of technology in art this year, though, and Marva has some surprises for us!

And a very special Heads Up : On  Friday Feb 26 we will host a “VIP Opening” and Sneak Preview for Marva Harris, whose “I Know Why” paintings will be shown beginning February 27 as part of Black History Month. On March 4, Marva will premiere a video performance with a spoken piece that ties the art together.

Also: Zoom Panel Discussion took place Saturday Jan 23 at 4 pm Arizona/Mtn Time! The culminating event for “IMAGINE: What Keeps Us From Unity?” is a panel discussion of the themes and topics covered in the art for this exhibition. All six artists will participate, and the amazing Ebone “Muse” Johnson will moderate. All are invited who wish to learn. After uploading to YouTube, it will be posted on this page – because it’s well worth your time to watch.

Imagine: What Keeps Us From Unity

View our exhibit in the Regional Unity Artwalk via the menu bar above or via this link: Imagine: What Keeps Us From Unity

The virtual Unity Artwalk is the response of seven local cities to the pandemic situation, which has meant that many MLK events had to be cancelled. We are pleased and proud to be able to participate along with many other fine artists and institutions. Our project is entitled “Imagine: What Keeps Us From Unity” and is co-curated by Tiesha Harrison and Therosia Reynolds, two of the participating artists.

Each of six artists – Jared Aubel, Andrea Rogers, Nik Ridley, Skye Rockett, Therosia Reynolds and Tiesha Harrison – has created new works in keeping with the theme. Beginning on January 17, we will release a video each day by one of the artists, and will post the video and that artist’s contributions in a virtual exhibition on our website.

We are releasing videos on the Millet House platform on the following days: 
January 17 – Jared Aubel; January 18th – Andrea Rogers; January 19th – Nik Ridley; January 20th – Skye Rockett; January 21st – Therosia Reynolds; January 22nd – Tiesha Harrison

On Saturday, January 23rd we plan a 4 pm Zoom Call Panel Discussion with the artists and hope you will attend. Login details will be announced here, or email us at themillethouse@gmail.com for a reminder and login info.

The City of Tempe is coordinating the project via a map that shows each city’s contributions.

The big news is that we are participating in the Unity Art Walk this month. Our exhibit, “Imagine”, is being led by Tiesha Harrison and Therosia Reynolds and we are SO EXCITED. 

Learn more about the Unity Art Walk: https://www.mesaaz.gov/Home/Components/News/News/7358/16

The main focus of the Millet House exhibit will take place on January 18-23, with each of six participating artists releasing a video on subsequent days about work created for this exhibit, and culminating in a Zoom panel discussion on the 23rd. In addition to Tiesha and Therosia, Jared Aubel, Nik Ridley, Andrea Rogers and Skye Day Rockett will participate. We’ll have a special web page where the videos and the art will be posted after each artist presents. More details to come..

AND: Because our exhibit is very high profile and we will be (and already are) getting are visitors to our website, we will want to make sure that it’s easy for visitors to find ALL of our artists. To this end, we will be adding individual artist pages to another tab. If you wish to participate, email the.millet.house@gmail.com as soon as possible (we will run out of time after the 18th, when all energy needs to go to making sure the Imagine project goes smoothly.) If you already have an individual page on the Millet House website, your page will be part of this. 

–> Want to know more? Zoom with us! Fridays, 5:30-7 pm. Login will be posted here.
