My Black Life
Black Moon Tulsa
July 5-27, 2019
“My Black Life” is a show featuring the artists of Black Moon Tulsa, a collective of African-American artists in the Tulsa area. The exhibition highlights what it means to be a person of color in America today. The collective of Black Moon artists have created pieces that cross-reference pop culture imagery around the quintessential American lifestyle. The works tie in the current social inequalities, disregard, and devaluation our society places on Black lives. Conversely, they also use symbolism and themes that coincide with the elevation of the importance of life and humanity transcending all races by also bringing importance and relevance to the Black life narrative.
*All pieces for this show are new and never before shown at any other gallery.

We have come together to uplift one another, while pursuing the dream of becoming successful working artists.
