Greetings Facebook Friends,
Happy Saturday. Our team is still working diligently on the . We are so excited and grateful about the love and support we have gotten over the past few months. Our indiegogo campaign was a great success, however, we are still fundraising in order to bring you the world class exhibition that both Mr. Neals and the world deserves.
On February 28, 2015 we will mount an art auction at Gallery 113 in the Crown Heights Youth Collective in Brooklyn, NY. Our team would like as many artists as we know to DONATE an ORIGINAL piece of art to this historic event. Our plan is to begin the auction on-line at least two weeks earlier so that our friends around the world will have access to the work in order to start the bidding prior to the gallery exhibition.
If you are interested in participating, please email me at [email protected] with your name and phone number and an image of the work, immediately. We will get back to you with further details within 24 hours. I am posting an image of one of my donations to the auction. It is one of my lino-cuts that Mr. Neals and I hand pulled together.
Thank all of you again for your continued support!!! I look forward to hearing from you or friends of yours. Yes, you can refer an artist friend if you would like.
Peace,
Dr. Myrah

Happy Birthday Master Otto Neals!!!
When I teach Art History, in particular the Benin Punitive Expedition, I always teach about the Lost Wax Process that was developed first in ancient Africa.
What a pleasure it was to see the process done first hand when I was invited to visit the foundry with Mr. Neals. Pictured is the Master working on a bronze sculpture of Malcolm X that had just been fired. Yes, it will be in the . The oxidization process is taking place right before my eyes.
I am honored to walk this journey with you Mr. Neals!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I have been reflecting about the course that the indiegogo campaign has taken over the past month. What a wonderful learning journey it has been for me.

We are approaching our final day of the campaign. Please continue to pass the baton like you have been doing. We need less that $300 to reach our goal!
I thought I'd post another favorite of mine titled, "Africa's Song by Mr. Neals c1991.Please enjoy!

I am posting the link again for your convenience. Please make a donation, share it with your network and spread the word. I know together we are going to make our goal and even surpass it. will open in May 2015 with your support!!! Thank you!!!!

Dear Facebook Family,

This morning I am appealing to my Women friends; young, emerging and seasoned. I need your help immensely!!!

When I decided to curate the Otto Neals Retrospective, I knew that it would be one of the greatest undertakings of my life. I recently asked myself, “What were you thinking when you decided to open the retrospective simultaneously in five galleries throughout New York City?” After meditating for a very long time, I came to two conclusions.

1. Otto Neals simply deserves a retrospective this huge….and
2. The next generation should know who this master artist is and be able to identify his works just like those that they are exposed to in Art History classes around the world.

This project is a pilot, a kind of opening the way for Mr. Neals and his contemporaries; the ones who sacrificed all that they had during the Black Arts Movement to create images that were true representations of Black people. Among these great artists are Ademola Olugbefola, Dindga McCannon, Kay Brown, Emmett Wigglesworth, Betty Blayton, Jacob Lawrence, Vivian Schuyler Key, Ernest Chrichlow, James Denmark, Tom Feelings, Faith Ringgold, Violet Chandler, James Brown, John Steptoe, Taiwo DuVall, Abdul Rahman, Kwame Braithwaite, Abdulla Aziz, Elizabeth Catlett and the list goes on and on!!!!!!!

A wise woman, Mama Amybell Olatunji once said to me, “Sometimes we just have to stand bare and naked to the world”. It took me a minute to get it, but once I did I began to practice transparency in my life whenever I could.

So I am asking all of my Women Facebook friends to support me and my efforts in making the Otto Neals Retrospective Exhibition a reality!!! Some of you may not be into the art thing, but let’s not make it about that. Make it about my asking for your support and my believing that you believe in me.

Please make a donation, no matter how small. $1.00 is the minimum. Walk the males in your life through the process of donating, like I did with my husband and son. Call your Sister friends and have them do the same. Thanks to all of you who have been donating and sharing the link. I am so grateful to have so many of you on my life’s path. There are only 7 days left for this campaign. I know that we can all make our goal together!

Please click the link below and take a look at the perks. I would love to see someone participate in an intimate wood cut printing workshop and private dinner with the master himself. Yes, that is one of the perks. What a great gift too!

During one of my weekly meetings with the master, Otto Neals, I had a chance to peak at probably one of his most prized possessions: a 3x5 inch sketch pad that holds his ideas and sketches when the thought of something new moves him. What an honor it to move through the creation process with such a great one! Please remember, we have just a few more days for the Indiegogo campaign. Every dollar counts so please give what you can. If you are not able to give at this time, you can help by spreading the word. All the details are our Indiegogo project page: http://igg.me/at/ottoneals/x/343362. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

Help us make this happen by taking a moment to click on the link below. thanks you immensely!!!

Greetings Everyone,
I will be emailing information about the two Cuba trips that I will lead in January and June of 2015. If you want to be the one of the firsts to get the information and you are not on my email list, please forward me your email to [email protected]. Both trips have limited space, folks have started reserving already. So reserve your spot early.
The image below was taken at Hamel's Alley; one of the most visited spaces in Habana. I loved being in that community. Kind of meditative, yet stimulating all at the same time (maybe because I could feel the presence of the Orisha) .:-)

Peace,
Myrah

Happy Monday Everyone! New York City schools begin their Spring Break today. Please help all of the family heads and/or caretakers find something to do with the children by posting creative ideas.

I went to see the WITNESS exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. It is a perfect outing for children because in addition to looking at it through the eyes of the Civil Rights Movement, one can look at it in so many other ways including the Artists, size of the images, the different mediums, the relationship between the music playing and the art, the video etc..... There is a timeline once leaving the exhibition area that takes you through the Civil Rights Movement.

Make the best if your week and have some fun!

A little positivity for your day!  ,  ,  ,
