Black creative voices in the arts are critically underrepresented. Throughout history, Black creators have shown us and continue to convey the profound power of their art, often using it as a vehicle to showcase the vital perspectives on systemic racism and the black experience.
LIFEWTR “Black Art Rising” series will bring that very celebration of the Black experience and creative expression to the forefront. This series will spotlight Black artists from diverse backgrounds and their creations that are inspired by urban impressions, lived experiences, and Black identity.
This is an extension of the LIFEWTR Black Art Rising time capsule, a digital immortalization of the arts of seven Black creatives and their art in hopes to showcase the powerful impact that Black protest art has on the movement to tackle systemic racism and injustice against the Black community.
