STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Arté 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, Arté 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.

Arté Noir exists to uplift Black artists!
