Names Michael, I’m just a person with a bunch of interests and an open mind to what the possibilities are in this world we live in. I’ve always been fascinated by art and dance. having those skills are something that should never go unnoticed. moving to Fall River, Ma. from Moreno Valley Ca. when I was 10 (22 years ago) really opened my mind to these skills. beginning with graffiti and break dancing. watching these guys and girls just expressing themselves through both of those methods was everything to me.
growing up in a public housing project was very interesting for the
simple fact that when problems would brew up wed find ourselves just
battling each other through dance. I loved the fact that there was no
violence involved and it made me think that there really is a chance for
change to happen anywhere!
my whole life I wanted to open up a place where all the cool street art could actually be showcased to the world. after the years have gone by.. I’ve amped up some of my ideas and now I’m looking forward to getting OPEN MINDZ up and running to show the world that there are talents in all types of lifestyles and classes of life!
Support my effort into the opening of (OPEN MINDZ) ART GALLERY &
SOCIAL CLUB. The main focus of this place will be to get unknown
artists discovered by locals, visiting tourists and the online
community. We’re mixing it up a little and plan to have live streams
daily to connect with other artists and art lovers around the world. if
you have ANY type of art you can send
pictures,videos,paintings,sculptures,erc1155 minted tokens, and all
other art related items into us or the actual piece itself. once we have
your art we will show it to our live viewers online and also anyone
that’s at the club in person.
After we get up and going, id like to offer all artists a chance to showcase and sell/auction their work for themselves or a charity of their choice. we’d have live auctions in the club and online while we stream as well.
getting deeper into my plans. id like to support local artists that
don’t have the necessary materials in order to create beautiful art and
provide them with supplies at the club so they are never held back from
their talents! these artists will have the choice to keep it or auction
the art off to put some funds in their pockets! there are so many
ideas that come to mind for this place but id like to get it going
before I add anything more to the plan.
Let’s not forget about the rest of the club! when people actually
enter it physically. id like to set up a few tables aside from the art
stations for social games and conversations. paint night, yoga sessions,
an open mic for our performing arts crowd. all our open mic and side
activities will be streamed live so supporters of the club can check in
and see what they have helped create!
Right now I have an opportunity to secure a perfect place for Open Mindz. It is a great spot and it is a unique space that’s perfect for our ideas. I searched for a while trying to find the right place at the right cost that didn’t sound impossible to get going. so I ended up actually finding a place here in Fall River, Ma that’s a nice cozy 900sqft place with great parking and an awesome set up inside.
to make this spot even sweeter is the fact that it’s at an all-time
low to own the building. with owning the building we can make sure that
we can always be around. I understand that we could move if we had to
but who knows how long that transition would be. eventually, after we
launch and gain some awareness id love to open a bigger location to have
nice performance art shows and set up showings to exclusive pieces of
art well have. for now, though I’m not trying to go big, I just want to
show the world we can open and share an amazing place.
id like to thank you for taking the time to read my ideas and plans. I know everyone is not able to just donate all the time and I fully understand where you’re coming from. if you’d be kind enough to just share my journey with others it would really help me out. thanks again for your time! have a great day!
