"Portrait Narratives in Black Form" Exhibit: 2.22.2020
On February 22nd, 2020, I curated my first art show exhibit for Black History Month. I was blessed to collaborate with three amazing artists to celebrate Chicago Black Art. My goals were pretty simple:
- Host an event on the West Side of Chicago
- Celebrate amazing Black artists and highlight their work
- Create a channel for Black entrepreneurs to be paid for their services
- Bring beautiful people together from all areas of Chicago.
To be honest, words do not amount to the pure joy I felt during this event. I saw loved ones, friends and family, former colleagues and bosses, and folks I met for the first time. Over 150 attended the event and had the chance to visit an amazing art gallery in the East Garfield Park neighborhood.
Featured artists included:
Brittany Harris, Graphic Design Artis (Go Bee Harris)
Jeff Beckham, Acrylic Painter (Jeffrey Beckham)
Jasmine Sims, Spoken Word Artist (The Jasmine Sims)
