The recent murders of unarmed Black Americans, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have ignited a long held unrest of racial injustice in America. In light of these atrocious events we are showing our support and solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement through the power of art. We will hold an online exhibition with guest speakers, and artists on June 14th to pay tribute to the Black lives that have been unjustly taken. Join us in uniting the world through art during this time.

About the Black Lives Matter Movement
The Black Lives Matter Movement originated out of response to the murder of a young boy named Trayvon Martin, and the acquittal of his murderer. Since his death the movement has grown into an advocacy organization fighting against violence against the Black community from white supremacists and systematic racism. The movement has spread throughout the world, and is officially led and organized by the Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc.

#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.
Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.
We help people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by 1.7 million members, we move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America.
Our campaigns and initiatives win changes that matter. By designing strategies powerful enough to fight racism and injustice—in politics and culture, in the work place and the economy, in criminal justice and community life, and wherever they exist—we are changing both the written and unwritten rules of society. We mobilize our members to end practices and systems that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward.
Until justice is real.
The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) formed in December of 2014, was created as a space for Black organizations across the country to debate and discuss the current political conditions, develop shared assessments of what political interventions were necessary in order to achieve key policy, cultural and political wins, convene organizational leadership in order to debate and co-create a shared movement wide strategy. Under the fundamental idea that we can achieve more together than we can separately.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also defends the gains and protections won over the past 75 years of civil rights struggle and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments.
