Happy Creativity Thursday!

During Social Media Week DC in February, I attended the Hispanic Outreach 2013: How to Reach the Highly Mobile and Social Hispanic session hosted by Latinos in Social Media and Bixal at the Art Museum of the Americas (AMA) of the Organization of American States.

The session featured some of my favorite digital sisters: Julie Diaz Asper of Social Lens Research, Carla Hamilton Briceno of Bixal, and Jennifer Lubrani of LATISM. See photo above.

After the session, I visited the AMA’s exhibition, On Common Ground: Dominican Republic & Haiti which featured the works of emerging artists of Hispaniola, the island that these two countries share. I fell in love with the artwork at first glance! It reminded me of my 2011 visit to Haiti with the Heart of Haiti Campaign. Check out some of my favorite paintings from the exhibition below.

In December, I visited the Museum to see the Mickalene Thomas’ exhibition. She is one of my favorite artists. Her mixed media paintings and installations set my creative heart on fire. Click here to read about my visit.
