In response to the recent series of events that spurred local, national, and global response, a group of Palm Beach County Black artists have stepped up to engage the community through art. Serving as both communicators and problem-solvers, 10 visual and spoken word artists will provide content regarding four centuries of turmoil and social and civil injustice. Since the revolution has already been televised, these artists will contribute to continuing conversations and help build solutions through art.
To purchase any of the works featured below, please contact Artist Services Coordinator Jessica Ransom at firstname.lastname@example.org or (561) 472-3336. Proceeds from artwork sales directly benefit local artists and support the Council’s mission to grow arts and culture in Palm Beach County.
