For immediate release
Baltimore, MD - 06th January 2021: The Black Heritage Arts Show has represented the black community for 15 years in a physical display since launching in 1995 at the Fellowship Hall of the New Psalmist Baptist Church, Baltimore, Maryland. Now, in commemoration of Black Lives Matter, the exhibition is hosting an online exhibition to celebrate Black Art through recognizing the Black Lives Matter campaign as its main them for 2021. This is the third year the exhibition has been held online and it was the first to enter the virtual space for art exhibitions.
The Black Heritage Arts Show was ahead of the curve in learning how to transform a brick-and-mortar regional event into a global experience enjoyed by thousands. Art collectors and enthusiasts will have a safe exhibition experience, enjoy engaging performances, and be enlightened by workshops regardless of quarantine-status, thanks to the power of digital technology.
"Coronavirus has severely impacted all events and exhibitions, and this year we want to present safely while representing Black Lives and Black Art through a digital online canvas. African American visual, literary, and performing artists are the unsung recorders of African American history. Their work reflects the essence of life in the African American community; it highlights its culture, religion, and struggle. To continue this rich legacy of visual, literary, and performing enlightenment, we must inspire youthful artists to develop and pursue their heritage in the arts." said Glenda Boone, Founder & Marketing Director for Black Heritage Arts Show 2021.
The importance of celebrating Black Lives Matter through ‘Black Art' is highly important in gaining a platform for many emerging American black artists who still struggle to get their voice and message heard in the 21st century.
"Baltimore is the home of Black Art and plays a significant part in promoting African-American art. This festival is one of the first to consider incorporating a virtual format, opening the doors to a global audience to showcase Black Art and Black Lives Matter. The Black Heritage Arts Show is always open to applications from artists young and old who feel their work represents our rich culture and legacy in modern America." Glenda Boone said.
The Black Heritage Arts show has already helped many artists find commercial success though its exhibitions and hopes the move to an online exhibition will provide a safe experience but reach far more people than ever.
"The importance of this show cannot be underestimated as a platform for Black artists and performers, many of whom have an equal passion for art and their culture, which needs to be seen in a wider context to become accepted as a part of all of our lives regardless of skin color. This is a celebration of black heritage, culture, innovation, and creativity and will present a powerful message to the arts world that these black artists cannot be ignored simply on the basis of who we are." Glenda concluded.
