Coming to ArtRat Gallery: "The Hai-Cuu Experience" a performing arts series hosted by noted hip-hop poet Cuu JoSama in association with Kenneth Cortez Productions

The free debut event coincides with August's Third Thursday in downtown Grand Rapids. ArtRat will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and "The Hai-Cuu Experience" will run 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  

What's it all about? "We are a platform for self-expression through poetry, music and visual art," Cortez said. "We will have special guests exploring new ideas and creations throughout the upcoming series, and we encourage you to bring yours to share as well!

"Come experience the Hai with Cuu and friends as we promote art in its purest forms in Grand Rapids, MI."

Cuu said: "I feel like there are so many hidden gems in the city from painters, musicians, and poets, etc., and they simply just don’t have a platform to truly express themselves!
"We've put together something really amazing for next week Thursday and for the coming weeks during ArtPrize."
Come join us August 18, and stay tuned for ArtPrize 2022 announcements from ArtRat and "The Hai-Cuu Experience!"
