A native of Houston, Texas, Marcel Taylor’s love affair with art began when he was a toddler. In 1988, he received a scholarship to the fine arts program at Howard University, in Washington, DC. Marcel also received his Master’s degree in Art from Lesley University 2017. Marcel’s current body of work illuminates the changing landscape of Washington DC and urban renewal. Though his works are nonrepresentational, they contain architectural elements which allude to the hardships of displaced
communities and vulnerable people. Multi-layered with paper and collage, his paintings reflect the layers of socio-economic complexities driving so-called urban renewal initiatives.

Steve Wanna is a multi-disciplinary sound and visual artist whose work includes music,
sound design for dance collaborations, sculpture, installation, photography, and works for mixed
media. Born and raised in Lebanon, he immigrated to the United States with his family as a teenager,
eventually receiving a doctorate in Music Composition from the University of Maryland in 2004. Most of Wanna’s work generally falls into one of two broad categories, both informed by the principles of emergence and auspicious coincidence as defined in systems theory, swarm intelligence theory, and Buddhism: under the right conditions, great beauty can emerge without the need for much intervention.
