Visionary Grind Arts and Hardy & Nance Studios are proud to present “Black Is. – A Reintroduction of Culture” art show, curated by Drék Davis. Featuring Black artists and spoken word poets, this exhibition is a celebration of Black creativity and experience. “Black Is.” will enlighten those in attendance by providing a peek into a world that embodies the beauty, anguish, and brilliance of Blackness. It is an opportunity for artists to reintroduce Black culture to audiences in a way that strays from outdated negative stereotypes, uninformed opinion, and individual bias.
