The 23rd Annual Art of Living Black is organized by TAOLB Steering Committee in partnership with the Richmond Art Center. The Art Of Living Black Steering Committee is a dedicated group of established bay area artists touched by the vision of founders Jan Hart-Shuyers and Rae Louise Hayward. Our mission is to preserve and expand the vision of our beloved founders by supporting emerging, mid-career and established artists of African descent.
Co-founded by the late Jan Hart-Schuyers and the late Rae Louise Hayward, The Art of Living Black is a non-juried group Exhibition featuring work by artists of African descent. Currently the scope is within the S. F. nine bay area counties. The Art of Living Black exhibition held at the Richmond Art Center, inspires school children, excites collectors, and honors African American cultural heritage.
