 Savannah Cultural Arts Center to Host Black Art Expo

 

SAVANNAH (Jan. 25, 2024) – The Savannah Cultural Arts Center (SCAC) will host the 2024 Black Art Expo on Saturday, Feb. 3, featuring over 30 vendors and performers, and food trucks. 

The second iteration of the annual event will host artists offering 2D art, jewelry, fiber pieces, photography, prints, and more. Inside the Ben Tucker Theatre, performers will be singing, dancing, playing instruments, and offering spoken word art throughout the day. 

The Expo, which runs from noon to 4 p.m., is free and open to the public. The event was organized by the City of Savannah Cultural Resources department, led by Cultural Resources Assistant Tasheca Hutchinson. 

“This event, for me, means a celebration of the incredible diversity in Black artistry,” Hutchinson said. “With the Black Art Expo we get to dive into this amazing world of creativity, showcasing the unique stories and talents that these artists and performers bring. Savannah's culture is so rich, and this event shines a spotlight on the depth of Black artistic expression in our community.” 

Representatives from the African Arts Museum along with City of Savannah Municipal Archives Director Luciana Spracher will showcase the W.W. Law Exhibit. 

Currently showing in the Savannah Cultural Arts Gallery, and part of the Expo, the exhibit Boundless is a multidisciplinary exhibition that amplifies Black voices and is a tribute to the exceptional talent of Black artist in our community. Boundless runs until Feb. 10 and is always free and open to the public. 

"Boundless is a tribute to the exceptional talent of Black artists living and creating in our community,” curator Antonia Larkin said. “With this exhibition, we aim to continue our mission of amplifying the voices of artists who belong to historically excluded groups, showcasing the limitless potential and talent they possess."

Attendees can also enjoy food from vendors Wing N It, Sweet Spice, and Royal Tasty Avenue as well as concession vendors Sweet Soirees by Nicole and The Ashford Tea Company.
