Hola! I hope that your weekend was great! Today’s muse is the beautiful and talented French actress—Aissa Maiga. Born in Dakar, Senegal to a Malian father and Senegalese mother the family left their homeland when she was only 4 yrs old to settle in France. Aissa studied acting in college and has since leaded top roles in several films. Most recently the French film Sur la piste du Marsupilami. Talented, yes but you know that she is also a SNC muse because of her gorgeous tresses. Her hair is so lush and versatile…nothing like natural hair. Are you feeling today’s muse? Do tell…
Hola! This is a mag too hot to ignore. They cover is always on point with beautiful women and men representing all parts of Africa! I just love that ARISE always show versatility in their mag–which expands from the models, to the articles, and the artistic flair in the layout. This is on of my fave covers, I adore the dresses and the big hair is fab. Be sure to check them out if you haven’t already. Enjoy!
Hola! I hope all is good with ya! Just wanted to share that The Global Africa Project opens at The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) tomorrow. If you are interested in contemporary African art, design and craft then this is the exhibition that you need to see. Here is a snippet from their site about the exhibit:
Featuring the work over 100 artists working in Africa, Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Caribbean, The Global Africa Project surveys the rich pool of new talent emerging from the African continent and its influence on artists around the world. Through ceramics, basketry, textiles, jewelry, furniture, and fashion, as well as selective examples of architecture, photography, painting, and sculpture…
I think that this would be a perfect outing for the young and old this holiday season. Instead of running to the shops for Black Friday sales why not take a trip to the museum and binge on some culture. If you can’t make it then don’t worry the exhibition is running until May 15, 2011.
