Talib Kweli to speak at Metro State College

Just a heads up!

Talib Kweli will be speaking at Metro tomorrow at NOON for free.
Here is the info from Metro on the event.
Should be a thought provoking lecture!


Name:Talib Kweli (Sankofa Lecture Series)
Category:Campus Wide Events
Location:Tivoli Turnhalle
Date:Friday, April 13, 2012 (Start at 12:00pm)
Description:Often branded as “emcee Talib Kweli” artist and Hip-Hop icon, Mr. Talib Kweli Greene, has been named the Sankofa Lecture Series spring 2012 keynote speaker at Metro State. The core intent of the lecture series is to make known and address social inequities in society. As a genre, rap music holds a provocative position at the intersection of cultural resistance and linguistic anthropology. Therefore, the use of Hip-Hop culture as medium to analyze and address social inequities engenders participation from people with broad cultural, ethnic, and socio-political interests. Talib Kweli will discuss the historical and current importance of Hip-Hop as a site of cultural resistance, and the use of Hip-Hop culture in pedagogical practices. This event is FREE and open to the public, no tickets are required.

On Deck 7 - A couple of quick phone photos

Here are a few process shots of the deck I created for the On Deck Show in Missoula Montana!
I transferred my drawing to wood + had my Studio 72 partner Harrison Nealey, cut it out with a jig saw to the shape I wanted. I spent about two hours just sanding it into perfection, trying to ensure the circle was as close to perfect as possible, not an easy task!
I then painted the girl in acrylic washes, spray painted the deck with *Bullet Proof* Evolve spray paint, glued the completed girl piece to the deck and finished it off with a reclaimed shoe lace! (Thanks to Delton Demarest for giving up his laces for the cause ^__^)

The show will be at Brink Gallery in Missoula MO May 4th. All decks will be auctioned and proceeds will be used to help build free skate parks with Montana Skate Park Association.

I am still contemplating a quick weekend road trip to check out the show...

ALSO - I recently found out a super awesome artist I know out of DC - Decoy- will be in the show as well!
Check out here work at Decoyink.com or Albuscavus.com

I will have better pictures up later but for now - here you are!
