On July 27th the Examiner published my review of a local play “The Visionary Man” currently at the Hudson Mainstage Theatre in Hollywood. It is a truly beautiful show well worth your time and money. You may want to check out my review at: http://www.examiner.com/review/visionary-man-the-best-town
Now there is more. On Saturday, August 16th from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm the African American Museum of Art and Black Hollywood Education & Resource Center is presenting a free exhibition of the actual art of J. B. Murray, the real world visionary man. J. B. Murray was a dirt poor southern farmer who was visited by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit moved Murray to begin painting late in his life. He created many beautiful abstract paintings and amazingly won international acclaim. His work has been exhibited around the world in major museums in Tokyo, London and New York City. Now you can see some of his magnificent creations at the Museum of African American Art, Macy’s 3rd Floor, Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, 4005 Crenshaw Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90008 this coming Saturday.
And as if that isn’t enough to get you out the door and over to the venue those attending will also learn about Murray’s visions and enjoy a live performance by the cast of “The Visionary Man.”
This is a most unique experience centered on a most unique man. It is a real tribute to the human spirit at its very best. For further information you may call 323-294-7071 or go online at: http://www.maaala.org.
