Artist in the Room

My social practice takes precedence in Midwest community arts. Alongside my community arts training, I am a part of a collective of artists consisting of Donny Bradfield, Rikki Byrd, Danielle McCoy and myself; Artists in the Room. With a mission of connecting emerging black artists with black artists and arts professionals who visit the city, we launched in 2017 after noticing a void—networking opportunities for black artists and arts professionals who visit the city. Since launching, we’ve have hosted Mickalene Thomas, Larry Ossei-Mensah, Sanford Biggers, T.J. Dedeaux-Norris, Derek Fordjour, and more.
