The artistic genius that is Kehinde Wiley

Hello my bubbly loving darlings! As you should know The Bubbleista loves to entertain and plan events–after all, I AM the “hostess with the bubbly mostess” who absolutely despises the status quo. As the saying goes though, “I can show you better than I can tell you,” which is what prompted me to decide to start sharing my fête forays with a new series called “The Bubbleista Entertains!” In this new series I’ll share event recaps; behind-the-scenes peeks; ideas; and inspiration.

For the premiere installment of the series, Kevin Walker–the ridiculously talented creator of the website Afro Bohemian Snob–and I have come together to host an event in honor of the arrival of the Kehinde Wiley exhibit entitled “A New Republic” which is on a selective-city tour only until through 2016 {check out a short write-up on the exhibition here}. We couldn’t allow the artwork of this illustrious artist to go uncelebrated, so we decided to host a brunch complete with music; private docent-led tours; and, of course, mimosas. The event is being hosted on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at The Modern Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.

And if you call yourself a real, die-hard fan of Fox’s uber-successful show Empire, then you know that the artist’s work is featured prominently in the series. I mean, what better art to encapsulate the boldness brashness of the music mogul family that artwork that bold, brash and commanding as well?

Stay tuned for a detailed event recap coming your way soon that will include more information about Kehinde Wiley!
