By Heide Janssen | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: June 15, 2017 at 9:43 am | UPDATED: June 15, 2017 at 1:43 pm We asked graduating high school seniors to share with us their post-graduation plans for the fall. We heard from 486 visual arts students. Some plan to go to work and some are taking a gap year, but most are off to college, to study everything from animation to journalism to marine biology. We’ve listed them by the school they will attend, including their major and minor fields of study, statements about how the arts have influenced their plans, and their reason for choosing the institute they’ll be headed to. $ = scholarship received Nawal Seedat, El Modena UC Berkeley: molecular and cell biology (immunology and pathogenesis) major; public health, minor (Photo courtesy of Nawal Seedat)Jocelyn Fermin, Katella UCLA: environmental science (Photo courtesy of Jocelyn Fermin) SoundThe gallery will resume insecondsShea Meyerson, OCSA Pacific Northwest College of Art: … [Read more...] about Where are 2017 Orange County visual arts students going to college?

Jim Beckerman Staff Writer, @jimbeckerman1 Published 6:35 p.m. UTC Jun 6, 2018 This is the year of Black Panther. Which means it's also the year of Kendrick Lamar, who did the soundtrack. Now the Hot 97 Summer Jam, the festival with a long and occasionally troubled history, returns to the Meadowlands on Sunday with Lamar— hip-hop's man of the hour— as its headliner. "He's just blown up to levels that are incredibly insane," says TT Torrez, music director for WQHT (97.1 FM). Better known as Hot 97, it is probably the country's best known urban contemporary station, and it has sponsored the annual hip-hop festival at the Meadowlands since 1994. "To have him on the Summer Jam stage means so much for hip-hop culture," Torrez said. "So I'm truly excited to see what he's gonna bring." Of course, Lamar is only one marquee attraction among many. Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, Remy Ma, Tory Lanez, A Boogie, Rich the Kid, Swizz Beatz, Famous … [Read more...] about Hot 97 Summer Jam 2018: Kendrick Lamar is the star. With luck, he’ll be the biggest news
Around 10 p.m. at her release party Thursday night in New York’s meatpacking district, Cardi B inhabited her role as Boss Bitch of the Pop Moment with endearing sass and insouciant verve. Swinging a luxuriant blonde ponytail above a tailored white-lace dress jacket, the 25-year-old rapper, who only two years ago parlayed a notorious Instagram feed into a breakout role on Love & Hip Hop New York, introduced each of the new tracks from her major-label debut in between sly callouts to haters and shout-outs to fans. A blur of impromptu gesticulation, she flawlessly lip-synched her rhymes as they played, prompting protective label reps to stop audience members from recording her direct to YouTube. One of the most eagerly anticipated major-label debuts in years, Invasion of Privacy was preceded by too many quality independent releases for anyone to believe it would be bad. Even before the pop chart–topping success of last year’s “Bodak … [Read more...] about Cardi B Is the Red Hot Boss Bitch of the Pop Moment
On a recent morning, Merry Green, the founder of the Black Women’s Expo, was a little tired and a little wired, but she had her coffee in hand and was ready to go as she organized the final preparations for the 2018 Black Women’s Expo. “I was up at 4:30 this morning doing some work, I placed all the orders in for McCormick Place. The booths, carpeting, tables and chairs… I knew I needed to get that done before I met with the new Toyota agency that came in to view McCormick Place.” Although the president of MGPG Events for more than 24 years with many top shows and events under her belt, Green admits that she still looks for unique ways to make each show better—for the attendees as well as the sponsors. This year, Green has formed a partnership with Real Times Media, the parent company of the Chicago Defender. Green stated that there had been conversations earlier about connecting. “We (Hiram Jackson, CEO of Real Times Media, and I] had … [Read more...] about The Black Women’s Expo Partners With Real Times Media to Celebrate Women
Fuck the leopards. Jungle Island's never seen anything as wild as what Rick Ross, Maybach Music Group, and Tidal unleashed on Miami Monday night. The Teflon Don didn't just take the stage. He stole it, broke it into pieces, and shared the loot with his friends. Rozay, the Bawse — whatever you want to call him — is a man that makes sure everybody eats. He pays homage to his forebears and puts his little brothers on his massive shoulders. He shines a searchlight on his whole city, grabs the face of America, and makes it look Miami right in the grill. It's no wonder that, at 10 years old, his debut album Port of Miami stands firm as a certified classic. But last night's live-streamed concert was much more than just a celebration of 19 songs. It was a confirmation of a decade's worth of hustle and a promise of even bolder things to come. It was an unbridled coronation of a most unrelenting and benevolent King — nah, a Bawse.By 6:45 p.m., the Jungle Island entrance was … [Read more...] about Rick Ross’ Port of Miami Anniversary Concert Was a Tornado of Star-Studded Insanity
