Inlandia’s Blacklandia Event Series summer workshops continue with “Writing About Black Art” workshops led by esteemed artist and educator Richard Allen May III. Sign up for July and August.
Artists create the work that is exhibited, collected, and written about in various publications. This workshop will give participants a basic understanding about the role of the artist in society, how to prepare questions for the artist, and how to organize those responses into an artist profile essay ready for publication.
