ART, MUSIC, LOVE- An Evening for Malcolm J

March 26, 2018 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come enjoy music, bid on art by Malcolm and other local artists, and sample food from local restaurants. All money raised will go to the Malcolm J Recovery Fund to help Malcolm get his new life started on firm footing. $10 Suggested Donation- Please share widely, we hope to see you then!

Kevin ‘Malcolm J’ Jones has been a fixture in the Short North since 2005. The neighborhood provides inspiration for many of his distinctive pencil drawings, and his friendly face and personable demeanor are familiar to most anyone who has spent time on North High Street in the past 13 years.

On the afternoon of March 1, 2018, Malcolm’s life was shattered when he was attacked by a bully with a broken bottle. As the result of this incident, Malcolm has been rendered essentially blind. He will no longer be able to create the art that provides not just his income, but his sense of identity.

In a life that has been filled with challenges, including mental illness and substance abuse, this will be Malcolm’s biggest test. A GoFundMe of love and concern from the local community has been amazing, and the story has been featured on local TV news multiple times.

On Monday, March 26- The Short North Stage at the Garden Theater will be hosting us for a benefit from 6-8 PM. Food from local restaurants including Marcella’s, Barrel on High, The Short North Tavern, The Walrus/Olde Town Tavern and others will be featured, along with local street entertainers and a silent auction of art from Malcolm and other area artists. I have attached a poster for the event, along with links to the GoFundMe that explains more of Malcolm’s story.
