Nomad Opening in LA-20 DAYS AND COUNTING!
Written by RussellJames on February 3, 2011
20 DAYS and counting until the OPENING EVENT for NOMAD TWO WORLDS Los Angeles.
In addition to AMAZING new art by our Australian Indigenous artists, Nomad Two Worlds is premiering it's first collaborations with the Native American and Haitian Art Communities. Award winning Native American artist JAMIE OKUMA (yes our first female artist to join the project!) and her mother SANDRA OKUMA of the Shoshone-Bannock and Luiseno tribes have made stunning contributions. Check out Jamie in American Indian Art Magazine this quarter or google her with 'Smithsonian'. Had my first sneak preview of our Haitian contributions and they are fantastic. I met Haitian artists, Pascale Monnin, Dubeus Lherisson and Renold Cleirsier thanks to a visit to Haiti hosted by Donna Karan and her URBAN ZEN FOUNDATION, ONEXONE FOUNDATION and our friends at CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE. The new collaborations bring the art forms of beading and metal sculpting to the Nomad Two Worlds project. And delighted to confirm that COREY WEBSTER, Aboriginal music artist who worked our "Nomad Two Worlds Anthem" with Taboo from BLACK EYED PEAS, is coming to LA for the opening. Thanks as always to Richard Branson and V AUSTRALIA, our presenting sponsor in LA, who support us as always. And really cool late breaking news - legendary spinner PAUL OAKENFOLD is working on our latest Nomad Two Worlds track!
Come see the exhibit at Pier 59 in Santa Monica, California - check our EVENTS page for the whole schedule.
