The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership is excited to launch the 10th anniversary of Black Artstory Month in February 2022, with the release of a call for artists!
UnJaded Curations and the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnerships seek artists to feature in the 2022 Black Artstory Month program in 2022. This year’s theme, Reframing Democracy: (Re) Imagining the Position and Voice of American Democracy, honors the trailblazing power of Black womxn’s intersecting identities.
This year’s theme will invite viewers and participants to answer the following questions:
How have Black womxn challenged democracy as an American principle?
How does nationalizing Black womxn’s humanity reimagine and reconstruct American democracy?
Selected artists will install murals on or display finished works in storefront windows and will receive an honorarium for their work. Artists able to complete large scale mural work and those with influences of anime’ style illustrations will be strongly considered.
Artists who identify with all gender constructs and non- gender conforming artists are encouraged to apply.
