Festival supports Humboldt Park art center

The Festival of the Musai is an all-women arts event Saturday night featuring a variety of music, visual art and dance to raise money for the Rumble Arts Center, a nonprofit community art center in Humboldt Park.

The festival takes place Saturday, August 21 (9 p.m. to 3 a.m.) at Multi Kulti, 1000 N. Milwaukee.  It features music by Ugochi (soul/afrobeat), Natalie Oliveri (soul singer/songwriter), Inaru (bomba/plena) and DJ La Perla Taina; a modern dance performance by the Laboratory Dancers; and a visual art exhibition.  There’s an $8 donation requested at the door, and prizes donated by local cafes, stores, and services will be raffled off.

Funds will go to help the center build silk screen and ceramics studios – and to help the organization continue to offer free and donation-based programs and classes.

Rumble Art Center, 3413 W. North, is women-run, founded two years ago by artist Brook Woolf with a vision of making arts education accessible to low-income residents and building meaningful relationships between local artists, neighbors, and community organizations.  Classes range from African drumming to drawing, hip hop and modern dance, yoga, puppetry, performance art and breakdancing.
