    Artist Amalia Amaki Explores the Life of Michael Jackson

    in Culture

     
    Rosa Parks Museum will display “MJ Obscura” by Amalia Amaki, an exhibit exploring the life and legacy of Michael Jackson through photos and mixed-media art, in November.   The exhibit is intended to showcase the traits and beliefs of Jackson as a person, rather than a celebrity.  “While a part of his intent was obviously to entertain, there is a culturally intelligent and politically astute side of Michael Jackson that has not been seriously explored,” said Georgette Norman, director of the Rosa Parks Museum. “Amaki’s body of work introduces a few basic concepts that will be elaborated on and more fully developed in subsequent artwork and a book in progress of the same title.”

    Amalia Amaki,Tony Succar & Gerri Stone discuss: "The True Force Behind Creativity"
    We all know that God is LOVE. In this broadcast we are going to discuss another attribute of God. That is...creativity. It is an essesence of the power source that calls someone to sing, or write, or dance, or paint....the list is unending. Art is a special gift...that has been given to some to share with the world. It is more that a notion...it is a calling, it is a responsibility.

    I think there is a Mike of pure spirit and he knew things that he had no business knowing. If he wasn’t saying — I’ll give you an example, I shared this with a very close friend of mine Lana and another friend Claudette just a few days ago, and it still boggles my mind because I can remember how Mike could turn on a dime. He could be very playful and silly, and then all of a sudden you could look over and he’d be looking at you with this heavy, weighty kind of gaze and my reaction would always be “what are you looking at?” He would say, “I’m not looking at you, I’m looking for you.” There were always these little things that he would say that I now understand to be challenges for you to come to know something that was you that you had not addressed yet.
