Ta-coumba returns to Fosston! Anyone passing west on Highway 2 in Fosston has most likely noticed the mural along the building just west of the stoplights. In the 1990s Ta-coumba (T. Aiken) visited Fosston for an artistic experience involving his talents with Fosston High School art students. A mural was created depicting the history of Fosston with portraits and landscapes of its history. This mural remains a vital scene for visitors and residents today on a business building in downtown Fosston.
FCLAA is proud to bring the artistic works of Ta-coumba to the Sorenson Gallery November 5- December 31, 2018. The following excerpt is taken from Ta-coumba’s website (www.ta-coumba.com):
“I create my art to heal the hearts and souls of people and their communities by evoking a positive spirit.
My art reflects a successful robust life creating objects and experiences. Over the years art has allowed me to travel, nationally and Internationally through, fellowships, grants, residencies, commissions, exhibitions, lectures and curatorial activities. I work in the spirit of collaboration and take great joy from witnessing my arts ability to catapult people into a visual journey.
I have always been fascinated with energy as a door, hallway, gateway or tunnel and the effect on ones approach or exit of a place. I am a son of a healer. On December 29th, 1972 my mother, Janet Aiken died on my twentieth birthday leaving me with a legacy of healing. I reluctantly accepted this inheritance as it slowly redefined my art and my determination to heal and use my art as a vehicle for change.”
Leapin’ Lizards! The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.
Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including “Tomorrow.”
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations… and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt! She finds a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
