Black History Month - Call for Artists

The Library and the ACC are committed to developing programming that would build upon the momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement by amplifying cultural voices through a lens of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). The immense impact of the recent Black Lives Matter protests and rallies have shed light on the systemic racism towards Black people which has affected the United States for hundreds of years. The ACC will open a series of Calls for Artists focused on amplifying cultural voices. This inaugural Black History Month - Call for Artists focuses on magnifying Black artists and the Black experience.


The proposed artwork may be visual, musical, performance-based, social, experiential, environmental, sensory, streetscape/mural art — all delivery methods will be considered.  The artwork may be a one-time event or a temporary installation, or it may be a series of events or installations.


Individual project budgets up to $10,000 per project will be considered, with the expectation that higher cost projects could be longer lasting, larger in scope and/or have a further reaching impact.  A total allocation of $20,000 has been budgeted for the entire Black History Month – Call for Artists.
