Art is Cool: Visual Gallery + Melodic Showcase


To open up the Austin Black Pride 2017 Celebratory Weekend - Art is Cool and Austin Black Pride have joined efforts to bring you a Visual Gallery + Melodic Showcase.

Join us Thursday, March 30th from 6:30 to 9:30 for an evening of drinks, light bites, vibrant music, and visual gallery by some of Austin's most talented African American LGBT artists.

Media representation in regards to minority visual artists is limited in the realm of fine arts. Art is Cool provides meaningful community art showcases and concerts to provide exposure and representation to underrepresented artists including minority and women artists.

The exhibiting artists include:
Beth Consetta Rubel - Visual Artist (IG @bethconsettarubel)
Fum Fum Ko - Director/Producer Photographer/Filmmaker (IG @fumfum_ko)
Ashley Hicks - Photographer (IG @adzua3)

We will have live music performances by Austin's own:
TREE G Music
Mama Duke
Chay CEO

The exhibiting artist will also grace the stages to reflect on their culturally rich visual collections! Their amazing masterpieces represent pop culture, the deep south, stereotypes, lived experiences, self-reflexivity.

This event is free and open to the public of all ages! Refreshments will be provided.
