CLEAR LAKE — The Clear Lake Arts Center will present its first “Master Artist/Musician Tribute” to Paul Micich on Friday, Nov. 5.
The “Evening With Paul Micich” will be 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Arts Center, 17 S. Fourth St.
Micich is being recognized for his accomplishments in music composition, recording, illustrations, mural and two-dimensional artwork, multi-media theater design and sound design.
A social hour, with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, kicks off the evening, followed by an introduction of Micich’s artworks and a question and answer session.
The night will conclude with a performance by his Des Moines-based group, World Port. His artworks will remain on display Saturday.
Autographed copies of “The Littlest Angel,” illustred by Micich, and World Port CDs will be on sale.
Micich earned an Emmy Award for his music used in the IPTV presentation of “The Four Seasons” series, and his illustrated version of the “The Littlest Angel” sold a million copies. He has five CDs, is designing a soundscape environment for the Wellmark Building in Des Moines, and serves on the Des Moines Metro Arts board of directors.
His plans are to tour nationally with World Port, and create a multi-media performance-art stage show based on his art exhibit: “FACES you me same different.”
Micich was chosen for this recognition by Gregory Schmidt, who runs four area Renaissance festivals.
“After dealing with multi-talented ‘Renaissance’ artisans for so many years, I’ve wanted to offer up a tribute to a few of these rare type of people,” Schmidt said.
