Season of Black Art: Image Gallery & Black Art Symposium

The Season of Black Art, presented by the AAACC from October 2023 t0 February 2024 with artistic direction by San Francisco native Rodney Earl Jackson, is a dynamic event series that encapsulates the essence and creativity of Bay Area Black artists across various mediums, from visual arts to music, literature, dance, and more. The season is a celebration of cultural heritage and artistic innovation, and it plays a vital role in fostering unity and pride within the Black community while sharing this rich heritage with a wider audience.

Leading up to the Celebrate Black Dance event, the Season of Black Art for the new year included a special presentation, “Creative Conversations,” with "The Wiz" cast member Olivia Jackson, who was interviewed by Aide to Mayor London Breed Tyra Fennell with Olivia providing a mini-dance class for the audience.
