Aug 24 2018

Refuge Foundation for the Arts is honored to be a supporting partner of the new single from these four legends: KAMI and Smoko Ono featuring Chance The Rapper and Joey Purp. Keep clicking play, and stay tuned for further collaborations with this very crew. You can listen on Spotify here.

We live in a time of change; of passionate opinions, protest, and reform. Words and images have the power to make people consider things in a new way, and there’s a lot to consider in the world right now. Public art places these images and words in front of those who might not otherwise be looking. We need more of it, in every city, and we need it to incite feeling, thought, and action.

The unique two-day festival will celebrate community through live music & visual artists starting on Friday, September 21 from 5:00pm – 10:00pm, and Saturday, September 22 from 11:00am – 5:00pm. It will combine musicians with captivating visual artists. It will be hosted in downtown Green Bay, partnering with local businesses around town including Kavarna, Keggers, Lyric Room, Black & Tan Lounge, Neville Public Museum, Three Three Five, Cup O Joy, and Titletown Brewing Company Roof Tap. We have announced 8 more musicians!

A year ago, we released our first album with co-founders Cory Chisel and Adriel Denae’s Tell Me True. We’ve since released three more albums: Robert Ellis and Courtney Hartman’s Dear John, Traveller’s Western Movies, and last Friday Adriel Denae’s solo debut.

In celebration of this special year for Refuge Foundation for the Arts we are putting our web-store on sale for 25% off with the code TELLMETRUE that is good for the rest of the month!

A portion of the proceeds of sales helps to continue our mission of bringing art to the community. Thank you to everyone for all your support, and we can’t wait to see what another year brings!

Thanks to all who joined us at Bike to the Beat on August 4th! Here’s a video of the event we wanted to share from our friends at Fox Communities Credit Union.
