February is Black History Month with many galleries featuring works by and about the African American experience. Examples we want you to know about:
In an art world that can be exclusionary, artblog has always covered a diverse range of artists and voices. That’s been an important part of our mission since we began. We hope you like our coverage and support what we do, which, in 2014 includes planning for an exciting new community project! (More on that soon.)
We are very grateful for the outpouring of support we received during our Decade of artblog campaign.
