About King Cupcake
King Cupcake is the brainchild of pianist Keith Burnstein (The Mumbles) and NOLA sensation, Lynn Drury. This acoustic duo combines The Mumbles’ funky singer-songwriter sound with Drury’s signature “Mississippi Grit/New Orleans Groove. Booties will shake as life-affirming mantras are repeated.
Over the past decade, Art21 has established itself as the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art and artists through its Peabody Award-winning biennial television series, Art in the Twenty-First Century. The nonprofit organization has used the power of digital media to introduce millions of people of all ages to contemporary art and artists and has created a new paradigm for teaching and learning about the creative process.
