Celebrating the Black Experience Exhibition

Call for Artists

The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage (KCAAH) presents Celebrating the Black Experience Art Exhibit, April 8 – June 17, 2022. This call for artists is to submit artwork to a Juried Art Exhibition that will celebrate the diversity of African descendants through the visual arts.

Art submissions should reflect the diverse environments and traditions that contribute to the fabric of the Black experience. Imagery expressing rejoice, sorrow, love, creativity, and truth-telling are all up for exploration within the Black aesthetic, contributing to a counter-narrative that provides alternate perspectives that are missing or underrepresented.

The exhibition seeks to celebrate the legacy of Black artists’ rich contributions and achievements and the impact Black art has made in transforming our struggle against oppression and racism.
