Santa Fe Art Institute’s Alumni will be taking over our Instagram story feed!
On Friday, July 29th Food Justice Alum, Hakim Bellamy, will be posting on INSTAGRAM via @SantaFeArtInstitute to share his work. Hakim Bellamy became the inaugural Poet Laureate of Albuquerque in 2012, at age 33. He is the son of a preacher man (and a praying woman). His mother gave him his first book of poetry as a teen, a volume by Khalil Gibran. Many poems later, Bellamy has been on two national champion poetry slam teams, a national and regional Poetry Slam Champion, and holds three consecutive collegiate poetry slam titles at the University of New Mexico.
