Artist and budding curator Patricia Symonds-Powell, cordially invites you to attend an eclectic evening of art, music and poetry with the birth of “Vida Como Arte” or,” Life As Art”. This event was created to bring an assortment of creative spirits together.  To share our art, our lives, our journey’s, and our love for all things which bring healing through creativity.

My goal with Vida Como Arte, is to develop a monthly series to showcase artists who share the same dialog of spreading love and healing through the arts.  Our gracious host, Richol Cafe and Bakery has served the Bed-Stuy community for two years, bringing a little bit of France with him.  This cafe is a haven in the heart of the hustle & bustle of Nostrand Avenue.  With a grand assortment of mouth watering pastries and a menu including breakfast, salads, entrees, sandwiches, Panini, quiches, bread and more  Patrons are welcome to sit and use the wifi connection while sipping on a latte or having a bite to eat.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 10, 2014
