Become A Patron Brings Shakurspeare Exhibition to Educational Institutions

 Baltimore, MD – Become A Patron, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the power of arts and culture in the lives of young people, is proud to announce the upcoming tour of Shakurspeare, a powerful piece of artwork in their collection. Created by artist and author Darrin Keith Bastfield, Shakurspeare, an oil painting includes in a hidden compartment the very first audio recording of Tupac Shakur and is inspired by the late rapper's dream of becoming a Shakespearean actor.

 The exhibition will be touring educational institutions as a solo one work exhibition and will include face-to-face lectures. This will allow a wider audience to experience the artwork and learn more about Become A Patron's mission of advocating the importance of fostering arts and culture to youth residing in urban communities.

 In addition to the Shakurspeare exhibition, Darrin Keith Bastfield is also in production of a documentary film titled Born Busy: Exploring Tupac Shakur and the Power of Arts and Culture. This film will further highlight the importance of arts and culture in underserved communities and is a testament to Become A Patron's dedication to promoting the power of arts and culture in the lives of young people and working towards a more equitable and inclusive society.

"We are thrilled to be able to share the powerful message of Shakurspeare with educational institutions and students across the country," said Donna D. Brown, spokesperson for Become A Patron.

"Through this exhibition and film, we hope to inspire young people to pursue their dreams and to understand the importance of arts and culture in their communities.
