Project Description

 

 

 

 

 

 

First Annual Elest African American Art Gallery

We have partnered with IHeartMedia to run all of our marketing, PR, EAAAG Ambassador and Events for this project.

Elest African American Art Gallery is a popup Art Gallery that will be open from February 01 - 26, 2022 to celebrate and feature Black Artists, Creators and Businesses across the country.

We will feature 50 Black Artists each week starting every Monday and ending the Exhibit that following Friday. Each Saturday we will have an Event celebrating those Artists whose Art pieces were featured for that week before. The Art pieces will be packed up for pickup or delivery to the buyers on Sundays. We will feature a total of 200 Black Artists over the month of February 2022.

Tuesdays thru Fridays we will be showing short films created by 16 Black film creators during tours of our Exhibits daily from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.

February 27th, 2022 we will be hosting a Gala to celebrate the end of our month-long celebration to our community of creators.

We know that February is Black History Month, what we are looking to do is to also showcase the future of Black People. To step out of the past and to showcase the beauty of our future by honoring Black Artists, Short Film Creators, Poets, Inspirational Speakers and businesses.

EAAAG will take the money that we raise to showcase our Artists in the best light possible by hiring Curators to create unique Exhibits each week to help the success of the gallery throughout the month of February 2022.

We will be able to invite schools to brought their students for tours of the Exhibits & to watch the short films created by African American Creators.

We will be able to have a gift shop that will offer products made by African American Business Owners.
