Co-founded by the late Jan Hart-Schuyers and the late Rae Louise Hayward, The Art of Living Black is the longest running event of its kind in the Bay Area to feature artists of African descent. The 23rd Art of Living Black presents an exhibition of over 100 works at the Richmond Art Center, as well as Open Studios and Satellite Exhibitions at locations across the Bay Area.

The 23rd Annual Art of Living Black is organized by TAOLB Steering Committee in partnership with the Richmond Art Center. The Art Of Living Black Steering Committee is a dedicated group of established Bay Area artists touched by the vision of Jan Hart-Shuyers and Rae Louise Hayward. The group’s mission is to preserve and expand the vision of their beloved founders by supporting emerging, mid-career and established artists of African descent.
