Frame of Mind 2023
January 24, 2023 - April 2, 2023
Frame of Mind 2023 is the convergence of multiple Black artists' work reflecting an array of perspectives, styles and techniques. The exhibit pulls together a dynamic representation of cultural heritage, experience, and identity across the diaspora. Art Ventures offers the opportunity with this diversity of works to gain a deep understanding of the richness and diversity of art, and how it is used as a powerful tool for self-expression and for social change. Additionally, Frame of Mind 2023 gives you a chance to see works by both established and emerging artists who reflect the past, present, and future through a culturally sophisticated lens.

#NWAJuneteenth 2021 Exhibition
#NWAJuneteenth is a virtual gallery of video exhibitions by local and regional Black artists who continue to work for freedom in America. Several of them have answered the question, “what does Juneteenth mean to me?” It is great to hear what they know, and we can find familiarity in their experiences. Their answers are much like that of other American Black families.
Importantly, the artwork attests to the role of artists in building strength in community and culture.
