Marquita Bianca, sought after performance artist and owner of BailaFuzion Dance Studio along with published author and spoken word poet Terell K. Mercer teamed up to present “Arts Out Loud: Diversity in the Arts Showcase”, the first in a monthly series. The Friday night event was held inside of the beautifully designed BailaFuzion Dance Studio on Holland Road, in Virginia Beach. “Arts Out Loud” or A.O.L. is an intimate gathering that showcases a number of artistic styles including spoken word, poetry, music, dance, and the visual arts.
While held in a cozy setting with an eclectic ambiance, the event featured an array of talented artists based in Hampton Roads, affectionately known as the “757” or “7 Cities” by locals. Highlighted performers of the evening included author and spoken word artist Susette “Sdot”, poet Beautiful Dizaster, Champ the Poet, and band Dear Adamus. In addition, the work of visual artist Andre Davis was on display and is currently being exhibited during the month of February in the studio. Each artist brought a unique flavor to the showcase, sharing with the captured audience, some of the stories behind their work.
The event provided a constructive platform for the young artists to share, collaborate, and network in a supportive environment. The venue was filled with attendees who eagerly awaited each special guest and welcomed them to the stage with plenty of encouragement and a great deal of love. The artistic elements presented, effectively delivered a 4-dimensional gallery of creative expression in an interactive setting.
