Host the First Black Arts Exhibit

Share

The March on Washington Film Festival (MOWFF) seeks space for an inaugural art exhibit that will take place during its sixth annual festival July 12-20. MOWFF has commissioned Black Art in America (BAIA) to curate a visual arts experience that will continue to tell the story of the Civil Rights Movement and social justice through art.

The exhibit is seeking 2,000-3,000 square feet of gallery or vacant street level space in Downtown D.C from July 12-20. Najee Dorsey, founder and CEO of BAIA will serve as the on-site curator. BAIA is an art gallery, media company and online portal focused on African-American art and has produced art exhibits in New York, Miami and other locations throughout the U.S.

MOWFF will also produce festival programming in the exhibit space. Special lectures, panel discussions, performance and workshops in tandem with the art exhibit will be presented in an effort to increase awareness of the Civil Rights Movement and its impact on today’s political landscape.

MOWFF uses the power of first person narratives, film, scholarship and the performing and visual arts to share  important and often hidden stories of a people and an era that defined leadership and inspired a movement.
