Hosted by Tacoma’s Poet Laureate Kellie Richardson, Summer SOULstice is an intersection of creativity, community and commerce. June 21st marks summer solstice, the longest day and shortest night of the year. SOULstice will hold space to celebrate this annual miracle by featuring emerging and established artists from marginalized communities. The work will featured should carry themes of awakening and healing, personal connection to Earth and spirit. The weight of historical oppression, generational trauma has never diminished the indelible joy, creativity, innovation and pride of those on the margins. SOULstice underscores this victory.
Featured artists include Kellie Richardson, Thy Nguyen, Olivia Thomas and and funk/soul band Hybrid. In addition to feature performances, an exhibit space and artist market will feature work from local artists and entrepreneurs. Work will include every medium and price range. Tiffany Hammond, painter and muralist will also create a live painting during the performance.
Co-sponsored by Tacoma Art Museum and Tacoma Arts Commission, Summer SOULstice is FREE of charge to all who’d like to attend.
