PUERTO RICO HURRICANE RELIEF FUNDRAISER



On Spetember 16th, 2017 Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane Maria
leaving the country destroyed, without food, water, and electricity.

In October of 2017, BASU Union president, Kehayr Brown, and vice
president Taylan DeJohnette sat down with event planners to discuss
holding a fundraiser during the 20th Annual MCAD Art Sale. Working
closelywith event organizers and administration of the Minneapolis
College Art and Design, 15 BASU members came together to sale postcards
and buttons. 100%of the proceeds were officially donateto the Puerto
Rico National Chamber of Commerce in Washington D.C. Over the course
of 3 days and only 14 hours BASU was able to raise a total of $1,200 for
Hurricane Maria Victims.

2019 Studio #400 Cohort


Studio 400 is a 2,000+ sq foot studio space and artist community
located in the Northrup King Building, in the thriving Northeast
Minneapolis Arts District. Studio #400 is a platform through which
artists invest in their own ability to realize an economically viable
creative practice and workspace. Within this space, the artists
have the autonomy to build community, dedicate to practice and
collaborate with each other. The space is curated and managed
by the artists.


Studio 400 is multi-disciplinary, an open interpretation of art and
artists. The program includes painters, graphic designers, fashion
designers and more. Artists who are self-taught and artists who are
traditionally educated are equally valued. Studio 400 prioritizes
space for artists of color and historically underserved artists.



In early 2019 Studio #400 leaders opened the first call for artists
through a submission process, I was fortunate enought to be apart

of the first inagural cohort of artist.
