The Ellen Art Show at GAB Studios January 22nd

Miami, FL – Talk show host and Emmy award winner Ellen Degeneres will turn 53 years old on January 26th. Long time Ellen Degeneres fan, local arts promoter, and poet Renda Writer has put together a unique event in Miami to celebrate her birthday with her all of her local fans and members of the South Florida arts community.


The Ellen Art Show will take place on SaturdayJanuary 22nd2011, from7pm until 2am at GAB Studio in Miami’s famed Wynwood Arts District(105 NW 23rd St., Miami, FL, 33127, http://www.GABstudio.com/). Admission is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome.

The History: Since 2007, Renda Writer has been in passionate pursuit of his this professional goal and personal dream to perform his signature poem, “Half Hearted,” on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

Because of the romantic subject matter of the poem, (a metaphor that compares the swans in New York’s Central Park to a search for love and shared romance) Renda would ideally like to perform it on Ellen’s Valentine’s Day episode, which will be only 3 weeks away from when he goes to LA to give Ellen her portrait for her birthday. His hope is that this event, the gift, and the effort being made to bring it to Ellen will solidify his chance for a Valentine’s Day performance.
