Our Midseason Arts Preview 

Islamic poetry. Galleries without walls. Innovative stagecraft.

In this time of global uncertainty and suspicion, some of these artists are making a conscious effort to study and understand other cultures. Muslim poet Mariam "Mars One" Lodin shares her faith and ideas about social justice through her spoken-word performances. WRIR radio show host DJ Carlito plays music from the hurt and downtrodden from all over the world. And Chris Humes and his group of designers have looked to the international community to come up with solutions for problems at home.

These creative forces in our community have big plans for the coming months. Some are planning events you may want to attend. Others are creating work you may not be able to avoid. Whatever their art and motivation, Style Weekly salutes them and the color they bring to town.— Carrie Nieman
