What inspired you to start curating shows?
During my time at Georgia State University, I had a number of artist friends but didn’t feel there was a perfect place for them to showcase their works. Between my love for art and event planning, I found the perfect opportunity to create a platform for my friends—and the underground creative community in Atlanta—to show off whatever their talents may be: caricature drawings, animations, musical performances, spoken word, or fashion.
How does your show stand out?
The vibe of our show is just different. I envision TAOM as a place where “everyone can have fun and be comfortable,” and attendees are encouraged to interact with the artists and vendors. Since separate rooms house the live musical performances and visual art, no one has to shout over the music in the gallery room. The result is an arts event that feels a bit like a gallery opening, club show, and social mixer all fused into one.
