Excited to have @tmagazine cover our inaugural pool party @thejosieclub retreat. Looking forward to next year. Thank you @racquelchevremont @ninachanel @izdabes @deuxfemmesnoires — My boo and I hosted our inaugural pool party in May for our fellow members of @thejosieclub , a collective of queer women of color at our home in Salisbury, CT. While Racquel oversaw the crawfish boil I mixed margaritas infused with chilies, guests squared off with pool jousting and took a spin on the zip line. Directed by @scottrossfilm #tsummerentertaining #qwoc #blackwomen #blacklove #blackvisibility — We also presented @derrickadams new black unicorn float from his new leisure resort coming soon.

@westmorelandmuseum in Greenberg, PA outside Pittsburgh recently acquired a painting from my color purple series: Shug Kisses Celie, 2016 silkscreen ink and acrylic on mirrored plexi mounted on wood panel. . . . This is a pivotal moment in the novel a bit watered down in the movie. However, life changing for me at 14yrs old when I first saw it in 1985. . . . . Thanks to everyone for welcoming me. It’s not the size of the museum that matters it’s the vision of the collective leaders within the institution that does. #art #artist #painting #thecolorpurple #mickalenethomas #thejoseclub #alicewalker

So thrilled to photograph @taylormacnyc who “wants theater to make you uncomfortable. His wild, profane creations confront us with everything horrifying and joyous about America —- and ourselves” for @nytmag on the set of his new play “Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus” on Broadway. . . . #theater #playwright #photograph #broadway #gary #nytmag #nytimes #experimental #bestlife #newyorktimes #performance #mickalenethomas #mickalene
