Portrait Narratives in Black Form - Imagery by Chi

"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)
