With a new month comes a new topic on In The Wings.
Throughout May, we’re talking Urban Arts.
Our coverage will include spoken word, visual arts, performing arts and dance. And we’ll introduce you to artists — young and old — producing inspiring and thought provoking work.
We start this month with a 17-year-old poet from Milwaukee High School of the Arts. Her name is Michaela Lacy, and soon, she’ll be bringing her original work to an international stage.
She’s part of a five-woman team headed to a global slam poetry competition in June, Brave New Voices, under the supervision of Dasha Kelly Hamilton, an accomplished local poet and writer.
