The Artist’s Umbrella presents ‘Art is Shelter’


Friday, July 30, 7 p.m.

UrbanBeat/Sir Pizza in Old Town

1213 Turner Road, Lansing


The Artist’s Umbrella, a performance series that unites a cavalcade of local artists for shows that present a sweeping range of different forms of entertainment, is returning yet again for another outing in the plaza behind UrbanBeat and Sir Pizza in Lansing’s Old Town Neighborhood. 

Each entry in The Artist’s Umbrella series has a unique theme, this time around it is “shelter.” Different aspects of the shelter motif include finding ways to escape and become shielded from stress, anxiety and the many other headaches that are unfortunately a part of the modern world.  

Performers featured include poi spinner Terjae Maki, poets Casey McVay and Keyante Saxon, musicians Amari Roper, Ivris Donahue, Jonas Greenberg, Gabbi Torres and Jacob Moran, beat boxer Tong FX, animal educator Sean Murphy and dancer Brooke Elizabeth. 

Doors open at 7 p.m., and that’s also when Artist’s Umbrella vendors will start selling merchandise. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online from one of the performers or at the door.
