Our doors have been closed to the general public since mid-March, and we miss all of you. In this time of grief and unrest following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many others, we want to reiterate that everyone is welcome at the Center for Arts and Learning. We stand with the Black community and support calls for equity, justice, and an end to systemic racism.
If you are an artist of color looking for studio space, practice space, or exhibition opportunities locally — or would be interested in becoming more involved with CAL — please let us know. We want to help, and we’re listening.
If you are an artist of color looking for resources, or are an ally interested in learning more and working in solidarity, these resources may be helpful:
- Artnet’s 23 organizations that support Black Artists, Thinkers, and Change-Makers
- Arts and Culture Leaders of Color Emergency Fund – apply or donate to support microgrants for artists and arts administrators of color.
- We Need Diverse Books – a great source for learning about children’s and young peoples’ literature by authors of color
- The 1619 Project – a New York Times Magazine project on the history and legacy of slavery for the past 400 years
