R&B band, pop art exhibit pop at Port Angeles Library tonight

PORT ANGELES — Global Heat, a neo-soul, R&B band, will perform a high-energy concert at 7 p.m. today at the Port Angeles Library.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at 2210 S. Peabody St. Also at 6:30 p.m., the library’s new pop art exhibit opens for an artist’s reception.

Global Heat’s influences include such old-school R&B bands as Prince and Sly &the Family Stone and contemporary artists such as The Roots, Bruno Mars and Macklemore.

The band members have performed in more than 34 countries, including tours of China, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Malaysia and Vietnam. After an extended tour, Global Heat’s original lead MCs returned to Seattle in 2015 and reunited with other original members to record a sophomore album with triple platinum producer Richard Garcia.

This year, the band won the People’s Choice Award at the Bellingham Music Film Festival for its new music video, “For a Lifetime.”

Limited library services will be available during this free after-hours event.

The opening reception for the new Art in the Library exhibit will be held at 6:30 p.m. immediately preceding the performance by Global Heat. Attendees can meet featured artists, enjoy refreshments and view the new pop art exhibit.

The original pop art movement grew from a desire to break down barriers between “high” and “low” art and often featured everyday objects. Andy Warhol’s iconic artwork featuring a can of Campbell’s tomato soup stemmed from this ideology.

Among other visual treats, library visitors will discover an entire alphabet with 1-foot-tall letters that were felted, knitted, crocheted, embroidered, quilted, collaged, beaded, hand-sewn and embellished with a wide variety of mixed media.

Twenty-four North Peninsula Surface Design chapter members contributed to this community project. It will be on display at the Port Angeles Library through Oct. 17.
