We are on #TheRoadToArtBasel + hope that you join us by donating and supporting us to send 10 Black Women Artist to Miami, Florida for Art Basel 2018. Our goal is simple, yet ambitious so we're asking for YOU to join the garden, give these artists their flowers now + be the shift in the narrative that Black Women only make 4% of the art professionals in museums, galleries across the nation.
