Cleo Wade Speaker Profile:
Cleo Wade is an outspoken artist, poet, speaker, and author. Her writing speaks to a greater future for all women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community, preaching love, acceptance, justice, peace, and equality. Cleo contributes regularly to W Magazine, Teen Vogue and her forthcoming book “Heart Talk” is to be released in March 2018.
Cleo sits on the board of the National Black Theater in Harlem, the Creative Council of Emily’s List, and was a National Surrogate for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign, speaking and appearing on behalf of Hillary. Cleo is also an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood and Free Arts, the non-profit creating arts programs for children from New York City’s underserved communities.
Cleo’s work is founded on the idea that art should not only be in the name of all people, but should serve all people, inspiring some of her larger scale public art installations including a 25-foot love poem in the skyline of the New Orleans French Quarter titled “Respect,” as well as her follow up piece titled “She” that was created in collaboration with graffiti artist Brandon Odums and is permanently installed on the face of a 50-foot warehouse building in New Orleans Bywater neighborhood. In the summer of 2017, Cleo created the “ARE YOU OK” project, a public booth for free peaceful and loving conversation at the Hester Street Fair in New York City.
Her latest public art installation, Show Love Spread Love is currently on view in Los Angeles, California on the facade of the Beverly Center.
Other mediums of Cleo’s art include drawing, painting, sculpture, and neon text.
