2%: A Celebration of Black Artistry | Opening Ceremony

The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art presents 2%: A Celebration of Black Artistry an art exhibition to feature the talent of local Black artists, highlighting the richness and diversity of their artistic expressions. The G.R.E.E.N. Foundation is serving as a proud sponsor for the exhibition. The exhibit is also to include pieces from the talent of our very own Kobina Wright. Join us for the opening ceremony or plan your visit. Let’s Celebrate Black Artistry!!

2%: A Celebration of Black Artistry features the extraordinary talent of local Black artists and highlights the richness and diversity of their artistic expressions. In a world where the representation of Black artists within the global art scene stands at a mere 2%, this exhibition amplifies the voices that have historically been underrepresented, responding to the need for greater visibility and appreciation of Black creativity within the contemporary art canon. Experience the transformative power of art showcased amongst the remarkable artworks on display, as we unveil a vibrant tapestry of narratives and an unwavering commitment to artistic excellence. Don’t miss this unparalleled opportunity to engage with the profound impact of Black artistry within our cultural landscape and to celebrate their contributions to our community’s artistic fabric. We look forward to welcoming you to 2% A Celebration of Black Artistry – where creativity knows no bounds.
