About Me:
Ken Calvert is an internationally acclaimed African American artist skilled as an illustrator, painter, graphic designer and muralist. A resident of St. Louis, he is credited with the cover painting of the Missouri Historical Society publication, “Discovering African American St. Louis”. He has also painted murals for the St. Louis City Hall and the U.S. Army Troop Support Command. His celebrated painting of Ndumba Tembo, one of the last great Tchokwe leaders, was part of the 2002 Anheuser Busch "Great Kings and Queens of Africa," series. Mr. Calvert is not just a painter, but a profound interpreter of the natural world, while exhibiting a great sensitivity for modernist innovations.
Celebration is a word often used to describe Calvert’s work which is full of life, color, and movement. He captures each facial expression with profound skill and creates complex compositions that radiate with emotion. One can almost hear the music or talk with the subjects in some of his paintings. In this way he offers the viewer snippets of urban African American culture.

Kenneth,

My name is Matt, the Marketing/Development Coordinator at America SCORES St. Louis.

We’re hosting an art show and fundraiser on March 20, 2010, and would like for you to submit one or more pieces to our event. I’ve included some information below. Please contact me if you have any questions about the project. Thanks in advance!

--Matt

The Inspired Art Project enlists local artists to create and submit original works, inspired by original poetry written by students participating in America SCORES St. Louis. Started by another SCORES affiliate in the Bay Area, the Inspired Art Project is an exciting national model for community collaboration.

On, March 20, 2010, the selected artwork will be collected and displayed at our annual Inspired Art Show. Proceeds from the event will support America SCORES St. Louis, a unique, comprehensive, youth development program which uses the tools of poetry, soccer, creative expression and service-learning to equip and inspire urban youth to lead healthy lifestyles, become engaged students, and grow into leaders for their schools and communities.

Interested artists need to register ASAP in order to submit their work to the event. Artists may choose to collect 25% of the final auction price for their work, or can donate all or a portion of the commission back to America SCORES St. Louis. Other artist benefits include:

• Free admission to the event (includes two complimentary drinks)
• Free guest tickets (up to 3) to the event
• Listing on our event website, www.inspiredartstlouis.org
• Listing in our event program

For more information, please visit www.inspiredartstlouis.org or call Matt at 314-533-0302.
