ATLANTA, July 26, 2023 – Black Art In America (BAIA), is excited to announce its cultural partnership with Power Haus Creative for ‘Black August’ commemorating past and present Freedom Fighters. As a participating partner during the month long call to action, BAIA will hold space for a number of in-person events.

Highlighting the current exhibition Better Days: Joy and Revolution, that will be on view through September 3rd. BAIA will also be showing Najee Dorsey’s Resistance series. Dorsey’s artistic commentary on the various ways individuals have used their voice and bodies to “resist” and fight against the powers that be.

Then August 11-12, BAIA will be hosting the BAIA Fine Art Print Fair. As the country’s largest fine art print fair focused on works by Black artists, this groundbreaking event will bring together a diverse and talented group of legacy and contemporary printmakers, while spotlighting the rich tradition and intricate process of printmaking. Featuring works by a collection of over 50 artists including Jamaal Barber, Kerry James Marshall, Robert Pruitt, Robin Holder and Delita Martin. The fair will give visitors the opportunity to engage with participating artists and master printmakers through interactive demonstrations and discussions. The fair will be open to the public and admission is free, with a percentage of proceeds from the opening day supporting the BAIA Foundation.

With a month of virtual programs on Black Power Media Platform and in-person events at BAIA, Black August will feature a community food drive sponsored by Georgia Roots, and in-person talk with Activist and Former NBA Athlete, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, and others.
