Review: "RECOGNIZE! Hip Hop and Contemporary Portraiture"
February 8 - October 26, 2008 National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution

The cultural evolution and influence of art is clearly evident in the exhibit "Recognize", a visual biography of Hip Hop. Most impressive in this collection, of contemporary mixed media and graffiti art is the technical mastery of artist Kehinde Wiley and his oversized portraits of LLCool J, Ice-T, Big Daddy Kane and Grand Master Flash & the Furious Five. The precision, size and realism of his work are overwhelming and make him a current day master to witness up close and personal.



Ballet Flamenco - Eva Yerbabuena
8th Annual Flamenco Festival, DC Feb 15,2008

From the very beginning the passion and energy overwhelm as you are exposed to historic Spanish Flamenco Dancing. The impressive physical endurance, unbelievable synchronized choreography, and acoustic music quality make for a very rewarding evening. The rousing ovations after each segment validate the mastery of these performers and their ability to move your very soul. Pure joy for the senses. A must see.
