BAM needs artist concept of The Black Arrts Movement District along 14th Street, downtown Oakland
Dear Visual artists,
In preparation of an official declaration of The Black Arts Movement District along 14th Street, downtown Oakland, we would like to see rough sketches of what such an African oriented district would look like. Sketch might include an African facade on buildings, flags of African nations, banners flying portraits of BAM artists, the Red, Black and Green flag and color scheme, North American African heroes and sheroes, especially Bay Area freedom workers, business people, political and spiritual leaders, youth leaders, vendors on the street, street musicians, street teachers, couples strolling, etc.
Please submit your sketches to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Paul Cobb at email@example.com.
Call Marvin X at 510- 200 4164.
Bay Area artists in all genres please plan to attend the gala celebration of BAM at the Laney College art gallery on Feb. 7, 2015. BAM Poets Choir and Arkestra will perform. The BAM Isaiah 61 Project will exhibit the work of San Quentin inmates.
