Graphic artist Chucha Marquez (pictured above at the We're Still Working opening reception) creates work that celebrates the beauty, resistance and resilience of Black and brown and queer and trans folks. When they partnered with LYRIC LGBT Youth Center to create youth-designed prints for We're Still Working: The Art of Sex Work as part of the 2016–2017 SOMArts Curatorial Residency season, we knew they would be the perfect fit to design the latest in SOMArts style.
If you pledge $25 to SOMArts' Kickstarter campaign to support the next season of groundbreaking Curatorial Residency exhibitions, we will show our appreciation by sending you a custom-designed SOMArts t-shirt. We hope you'll agree that Chucha's design for SOMArts' new t-shirt perfectly captures our work at the heart of intersectional, community-based art and culture.
SOMArts seeks artists of color to exhibit in the two-night, large-scale exhibition, Night Light: Multimedia & Performance Festival, on Friday and Saturday, August 25 and 26, 2017, 8:00 pm–midnight. Now entering its seventh year, Night Light blankets SOMArts indoors and out in luminous art installations, including audiovisual performances, performative interventions and digital and cinematic projections. This year, Night Light will be co-curated by Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green and presented in conjunction with The Black Woman is God: Divine Revolution.
