A call to black artists

February is National Black History Month that started as a method of remembrance with regard to the vital events and people in the history of the African diaspora. Today, it is 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.

The Chaffee Art Center believes art has the power to transform lives and communities. They are honored to invite Black artists to submit artwork or other creations for the Chaffee to display for their upcoming exhibit on Jan. 14 to Feb. 25, 2022.

Deadline to send emails of interest is Jan. 3.

Artwork drop off is Friday, Jan. 7 and Saturday, Jan. 8, or by arrangement.
