AIR Interview – VersAnnette and Community on a Shelf

VersAnnette Blackman-Bosia is the founder/owner of Soul Revival Healing Arts. As an EveryLibrary 2019 Artist in Residence, her residency will feature a series of large canvasses called “Community on a Shelf” that explore themes of healing and reconciliation for communities and individuals through libraries. She is an artist, author, advocate & facilitator. Known affectionately as ‘Verse’, her experience is a melting pot of intuitive healing, painting, writing poetry, public speaking, and helping others see creativity as a catalyst for ‘digging in’ to rediscover their own innate gifts. Her work will be on display at the Oak Park (IL) Public Library beginning Saturday, October 19th.
