The evening is hosted by Julia Othmer, InterUrban ArtHouse and our many artist collaborators. The mission of the InterUrban Art House is to enrich the cultural and economic vibrancy of the community by creating a place where artists and creative industries can work and prosper in an
affordable, sustainable and inclusive environment.

The ArtHouse offers five core programs: ArtWorks, ArtSmart, ArtMatters, ArtHeals and ArtsConnect.

Julia Othmer’s voice is vibrant and emotionally potent. Her piano-driven performances are mesmerizing fusions of raw power, vocal artistry and joy. The child of refugees, Othmer draws from a richly cultured palette of experience to inspire her intensely human yet otherworldly songs. Using music to connect to people and social issues inspires her. She is one of seven artists selected to represent the USA for Global Music Match 2021.
