STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

ARTE NOIR seeks to be a gathering place for exploring the dynamic creativity that springs from African and African American culture. With a focus on people, ARTE NOIR shines a light on the makers, thinkers, and doers who are, and have been, innovating in their fields; centering the soulfulness and power of Black art.

ARTE NOIR exists to uplift Black artists! 

ARTE NOIR's mission is to create space, stability, opportunity, and training to serve the needs of the displaced Black creative community with a permanent location at Midtown Square.
