THE LEGEND IS BEING CELEBRATED FOR HER WIT AND WISDOM IN A NEW EXHIBITION AT NEWARK ARTS FESTIVAL. by: BY KEYAIRA BOONE SEPTEMBER 8, 2021
Dionne Warwick was named Queen of Twitter shortly after joining the social media platform but she didn’t sign up to compete for a crown.“That was not the purpose of my being on Twitter,” she told ESSENCE. “The purpose was to kind of turn around some of the things being said and done on Twitter.”
Art inspired by famous quips from the entertainer and New Jersey native will be displayed alongside artifacts from her majestic life in a new art exhibition at the Newark Arts Festival.
Dionne Warwick: Queen of Twitter will feature 17 pieces of original artwork from artists including Lavett Ballard, Pamela Council, Jo-El Lopez, Beau McCall, Dianne Smith, and Felandus Thames.
