Art in Black

What happens when you gather artists together to display what black means to them using their medium? A MASTERPIECE. (pun all the way intended.)

Black: Color, Material, Concept, one of the current exhibits at the Studio Museum, showcases work from modern and contemporary artists as they explore BLACK through their personal lens. Work from artists Sam Gilliam, Nari Ward, Glenn Ligon, Kara Walker, Noah Davis should be the one reason to catch this exhibit before it ends.

But I give two more reasons why I’m stanning for this exhibit:

A) black is beautiful. Black artists creating pieces using black as their inspiration. It doesn’t get better than that.
B) Thelma Golden is the Chief Curator of the Studio Museum which means she’s responsible for championing and bringing amazing work to Harlem. Epitome of #blackgirlmagic.

The exhibit runs through March 6. Meaning you have less than two months to see. If you do go, tag us #CulturedMosaic. I would love to see pictures!
