Multitudes: Music and Poetry Inspired by Making American Artists
World Cafe Live and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) present Multitudes, a multisensory event series. Hear world premiere works from some of Philadelphia’s top performers commissioned by World Cafe Live, all inspired by PAFA’s current exhibition, Making American Artists.

Multitudes asks five musicians and three poets to share their individual reflections of the artwork, presenting new narratives in American art history by spotlighting stories about women artists, LGBTQIA+ artists, and artists of color. The result is a highly personal and powerful illumination of what it means to be an American and an American artist today.

*Please Note* ILL DOOTS will not be appearing live at this event; their performance will be streamed

ILL DOOTS

ILL DOOTS

ILL DOOTS has always and will forever be a body of change. Since their inception at University of the Arts in 2009, this musical collective of individuals has each brought their own lifetime of artistic influences and experiences into the fold to contribute to the group’s timeless and genre-defying music.  Hailing from all over the United States but unified under the undeniable grit and soul of Philadelphia, the band currently consists of four members: US – Emcee, Elle.Morris – Vocals, Scott Ziegler – Bass, & Jordan McCree – Drums.  From energy shifting live performances to commissioned theater works and educational workshops, 3 studio albums and countless mixtapes– to deny ILL DOOTS’ output, advocacy, and relevance to the culture would be a disservice to the community that helped make it possible. Every member strives to embody the acronym behind the whole brand: ILL= I Love Living & I Love Learning.
