Bum Rush Art Basel!

Seven artists from DC have been invited to participate in the Prizm Art Fair and we need your help to get there!

In recent years, DC artists, collectors and gallerists have been making the pilgrimage to Art Basel Miami Beach in ever-growing numbers. With 260 leading galleries participating and over 50,000 people in attendance, Art Basel Miami is one of the most highly exposed art fairs in North America. This year a group of 7 Black artists will be showing work together at the Prizm Art Fair, along with other jury-selected American and international artists. This is an incredible opportunity, not only as artists but as ambassadors of DC’s contemporary art scene.

Participation in Prizm will allow us to exhibit our work to a much wider audience on a scale we could not achieve individually. Each artist will show up to five works, more than is typical for an art fair. As well, the exhibition will be on view from December 4-22. We are asking for your help to offset the expenses associated with participating in a traveling exhibition.

The Selected Artists:

Holly Bass

Wesley Clark

Jamea Richmond-Edwards

Shaunte Gates

Amber Robles-Gordon

Adrienne Gaither

Stan Squirewell
