A Call to Artists and Artisans celebrating Black History

A Call to Artists and Artisans celebrating Black History

Let’s celebrate Black History! February is National Black History Month and an important month of both remembrance, recognition, and education. It is a time for people of any color to look at the incredible figures in Black History, as well as raising awareness about the issues that are still present in society in terms of racism and the rights that black people are affected by, and it is a great opportunity for people from all walks of life to broaden their horizons and expand their understanding.

At the Chaffee Art Center, we believe art has the power to transform lives and communities. We are honored to invite Black artists to submit artwork or other creations for the Chaffee to proudly display for our upcoming Exhibit Jan. 13 to Mar. 3, 2022. We also welcome artists and artisans whose work celebrates Black History to submit their work for consideration.

Deadline to send letters of interest is Jan. 3.

Artwork drop off: Friday, Jan. 6 and Saturday, Jan. 7, or by arrangement.

Please send inquiries, digital photos and short bio to [email protected]
