Yilma's Community Art Center

Support the Dream: 

Buy Raffle Tickets

The Dream

Yilma Hailu is a respected Gospel Singer and multitalented artist within the Ethiopian community. His vision is to share his arts with the world and to inspire other artists through instruction and community engagement. 


By buying a ticket you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of his original paintings.  The money raised will enable him to finance an art center in the heart of Minneapolis - a safe space to artistically develop and engage with the community. 

ዘማሪ/ሰዓሊ/ ይልማ ኃይሉ በኢትዮጵያ ሕብረተሰብ የተወደደ እና አድናቆት የተቸረው፣ከዝማሬው ባሻገር ሁለገብ የስነ ጥበብ ባለሙያ ነው። ኪነጥበባዊ ውጤቶቹን ለሕብረተሰቡ ማካፈል፣ እንዲሁም በማስተማር እና በማሕበረሰቡ ውስጥ የሥነጥበብ ዝንባሌ ያላቸውን ሰዎች ለማበረታታት ተነስቷል። 


ለዚህም አላማ መሳካት ለመጀመርያ ጊዜ በሚኒሶታ ያሚከፈተውን የሥነጥበብ ማዕከል በገንዘባችሁ ለመደገፍ ትችሉ ዘንድ ፣ የሰዓሊ ይልማ ኃይሉን ስዕሎች በዕጣ ለመሸጥ በ Rally Up በተዘጋጀው ቶንቦላ ቀርቧል።

Help us reach this dream!  We want to open this art studio in late 2020/ early 2021 to the broader public.  Until then, we will be using the space for virtual art classes and audio/visual recordings of live instrumental music.
