This month, one of the most anticipated events of the year is taking place, When Harlem Comes to Paris (WHCTP). WHCTP is a whirlwind affair where you attend an evening event dressed in 20's fashions enjoying the company of some of the more notable and not so known characters of the legendary Harlem Renaissance. The event takes place at L'Alliance de Francaise which is located at Embassy Row in Washington DC and creates an experience of being among the staple artists of the Harlem Renaissance while on vacation in Paris.

Liberated Muse was up in the house for the event last year and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Fabulous food, superb jazz music and an atmosphere of divine spirit are trademarks of this event which is intergenerational, multi-cultural, classy and fun.

Liberated Muse member, curator Sharon Burton curated the art gallery last year that was featured at the event and she is back again, curating the art of this year's sole featured artist, Liberated Muse member James Terrell. Terrell's rich paintings will be the focal art of the event.
