PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale and The Music Center invite you to celebrate Black History Month with two special events in February at Palmdale Playhouse, 38334 10th St. East.
On Thursday, Feb. 2, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Palmdale Playhouse celebrates its newest art exhibit, Expansion: Exploring Evolution and Expansion Through Hair, by artist Ashley Khan. No reservations are required, and light refreshments will be served at this complimentary reception.
Ashley Khan is a multidisciplinary artist exploring art within illustration, hand lettering, fiber arts, and wardrobe design. In this exhibit, she focuses on “expansion” — always building to develop and matriculate into greater creative works. Her exhibition will be on display through Feb. 28. Please call 661/267-5684 to schedule additional viewing opportunities.
Continue the celebration at Palmdale Playhouse on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 7 pm with an evening of Dance, Music, Paint, Poetry, and Peace: Celebrating Community through Creativity.
Mosaic Performances will be hosted by poetry and spoken word artist, author, and actor Sean Hill. The evening will include a captivating dance and music performance from Got Rhythm!, based on the indigenous American art form of rhythm tap dance. The evening will conclude with a meet and greet with Sean Hill and Ashley Khan.
This event is complimentary, but reservations are required and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit four patrons per reservation.
