The Art of Living Black 2017

collagetaolbRichmond Art Center is proud to host the only annual exhibition in the Bay Area to exclusively feature regional artists of African descent. Now in its 21st year, we look to some of the deeply resonating art presented in this annual tradition of spotlighting the most extraordinary and striking work of the moment.

The Art of Living Black was founded by the late sculptor Jan Hart-Schuyers and late painter Rae Louise Hayward after their realization that black artists were not being represented by galleries in any significant way. This year’s exhibition will showcase a broad range of works by 45 artists from throughout the Bay Area.
