The Museum of Cultural Arts Presents:

The Queens of Creativity Debut Art Exhibit


 April 12, 2011 – On Saturday, April 30th from 6:00  to 9:00 pm


Museum of Cultural Arts Houston (MOCAH) and Betz Art Gallery will host an art exhibit
at Betz Art Gallery located at 1208 W. Gray to introduce the Queens of Creativity.
Presented by MOCAH and the Art of Culture, this dynamic group of women is
comprised of talented artists whose mission is to use creativity to empower others. They
are donating half of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork at the event to the youth
based art programs of MOCAH.
Reginald Adams, founder of MOCAH said, “The Queens of Creativity have recognized
the need for more youth in urban communities to have access and exposure to the arts.
This needs is amplified as our public schools are faced with drastic funding shortfalls
which impact how the arts are reduced or eliminated in our schools.”
The exhibiting artists include MOCAH Co-Founder, Rhonda Radford Adams, Laneya
Jacob, Sam Turner, Cherry Meekins, and Elisabet Gonzalez-Barranco. These women
are also the original members of the Queens of Creativity and are each uniquely artistic,
eclectic and inspired by the goal in mind to support the community through the arts. The
QOC strive to become a global alliance of creative professionals that use art to support
outreach, community service, and professional development.
“This is an amazingly creative group of artists whose work brings awareness to issues
that affect our society as a whole,” said Branden Morris, Director of the Art of Culture.
The event sponsors are Bud Light and Dripping Springs Pure Texas Vodka. Expected
attendees include art enthusiasts, community leaders, political figures, friends and
board members of MOCAH. For more information about MOCAH visit www.mocah.org.
The event Twitter hashtag is #MOCAHQOC.
