The Blend takes over City Arts Factory

On May 8th. I went to City Arts Factory to experience The Blend. It was a pop up shop experience that featured local fashion Designers, Painters, Artist, Musicians, Singers and hip hop Lyricist, Producers, and the Orlando media in one creative environment. I focused my attention on the D) who kept the beats coming. Across from me there was free cup cake samples. in a note room, Rihanna, sang a couple of songs. No she wasn't "the" Rihanna, but she could carry tune. She confided that she should probably change her name.

On the walls were black and White photos the documented the history of hip hop music. Some folks took selfies in front of photos of famous of photos of famous hip hop artists. I did a quick walk around to see the art on the walls. Nothing really stopped me in my tracks.  The Blend is a great idea if you want to mingle and meet some of Orlando's creatives. I hope this event keeps growing and gains momentum

Today, Saturday October 17th, The Blend Orlando Presents '4OXO'. Aero and The Patio, will host the ultimate relationship building phenomenon from 4pm - 10pm. The attendees will gain knowledge and have access to network in a blended environment with the creative elite in the Orlando.
