About the event

A native of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. KMonee is a graduate from Kent State University,

where she received a Bachelor of the Fine Arts in Theater. KMonee began her career in the

theater by performing at Porthouse Theater, and the Tri-City Cuyahoga Community Theater.

Thereafter, she continued to cultivate her craft in the theatre performing regionally at Karamu

House Theatre, Beck Center, Dobama Theatre, Cleveland Public Theatre, and Cleveland City

Hall.  As an Equity Member Candidate, in 2008, she was inducted into the Karamu Hall of Fame

receiving the “Rising Star Award.” 


KMonee expanded her reach within the artist community and joined the TowerPress Artist

Group as a visual artist. With the support of her village, she returned to her first love of painting

and drawing. Her works entitled “Illustrations of a Colored Girl,” exhibited throughout the

Greater Northeastern Area at Karamu Theater, George Forbes Gallery, Rebar, Tri-C Metro “A

Time for Healing” Trinity Lutheran Cathedral, Tower Press, Dobama Theatre, and Cleveland City



Through her current artwork, KMonee illustrates and captures the essence of Freedom. The

Freedom Collection tells her story coloring the implications of her experiences as a black

woman in America.  She hopes to ignite and encourage other artists to have open

conversations centered on community issues of race, ethnicity, and gender giving momentum

to the social diversity movement with a focus on positive progression with healing at the end

goal.  As she serves God through the arts, she hopes to revive, restore, and resurrect the voice

of the artist.
