By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton

We emerged from the emotional uplift of the kick-off to Art & Soul and went into Krash Krew's birthday celebration for Keesha Dixon, a standing ovation for Okara Imani, a tribute to Nina Simone by Manon Voice; and a gallery opening for Beatriz Vásquez. Today, we engrave their names onto our Sacred Heart. A Sacred Heart is a Christian symbol of God's boundless and passionate love, a symbol that, when displayed in a home, includes the engraved names of dear ones. That's why Beatriz Vásquez's cut paper sacred heart is our art of the week.
