World Erotic Art Museum Celebrates Josephine Baker

World Erotic Art Museum Celebrates Josephine BakerMonday, January 4, 8:00pm-11:00pm – World Erotic Art Museum, 1205 Washington Avenue,  Miami Beach

World Erotic Art Museum will host an extraordinary evening featuring “Fela!” show star Galen Lambert honoring legendary entertainer Josephine Baker. Every February, during Black History Month, Erotic Art Museum owner Naomi Wilzig devises a creative, imaginative and notable way to honor the iconic Josephine Baker, who is one of her personal heroes. Previous programs have featured Jean-Claude Baker, who is the biographer and adopted son of the famous entertainer, as well as performers who have evoked her spirit. This year, Lambert will be the guest speaker. In his talk, entitled “The Bottom, the Derriere and the Nyash,” he will discuss the similarities and differences between Baker, the famous American expatriate entertainer and Fela Kuti, the Nigerian activist and musician. Lambert, a Miami native, takes the stage in “Fela!,” when it opens at the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts on March 19.
