We are excited to announce that Black Art Today!, LLC is now Black Art Today, Inc. Maryland Trade Name, The Black Art Today Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) Public Charity. The change is only in name and structure, as we remain committed to fulfill our mission to promote artists that depict the African Diaspora in the forms of visual arts, literature, and performing arts.
We value and request your continued support during and at the completion of this transition. We firmly believe that as we grow and mature as an organization so does the art community as a whole.
