In partnership with the Black Student Union, Amherst College Multicultural Resource Center, and the Arts at Amherst Initiative, the Mead is proud to support the fourth installment of the Black Art Matters Festival. In 2017, Zoe Akoto (Amherst College ‘21) noticed a lack of art by Black students on campus and started the Black Art Matters Festival as an affirmation and celebration of Black student artists and creators in the Five Colleges. This year, the festival will take place online via Zoom and feature performances and visual art by Black students at Amherst College.
This program is free and open to all, but registration is required. Please use the link below to register for access to the Zoom link.
