This year an annual arts-focused event that celebrates the rich tradition of Black art in Brooklyn hopes to unite artist and viewers with an exploration of love as a power for healing, unity and liberation.
The theme is “Love, this time” for the 2021 edition of the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership’s Black Artstory Month, and nine installations on are on display in storefront windows along Myrtle Avenue.
Curated by Atiba T. Edwards, the exhibition includes work by Black artists and activists in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill, including Tiffany Baker, Ashley Crawford and Steven Mosley. You can also get some artistic inspiration via the playlist Edwards compiled (available via Spotify) as part of the month-long celebration.
Artwork will be on display through the month of February and you can find a full list of the participating artists and a map of the installation sites on the event page online.
The annual art work takes place each year in conjunction with Black History Month.
