Who We Are:
Black Moon was founded in March 2018 as an art collective for local Black Artists in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
We have shown our artwork in several locations in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City area, interviewed with several news publications both locally and nationally, and participated in many festivals and events that benefit our area.
We provide space for Black Artists to create, collaborate, and show their work. We partner with the community to bring our voice through representation to our local artistic landscape.
Our goal is to break standards, push innovation, and cultivate creativity. We have acquired a studio and gallery spot inside of Wompa to create and show art. We are raising funds to cover the remainder of our rent for the year. This will allow us to accomplish what we have been focused on implementing inside of our headquarters.
With your gift, we will be able to:
- create more Black Art driven exhibits
- organize artist-led workshops
- partner with local organizations and schools
- provide a space for artists to create and collaborate
On our path to becoming a solid and sustaining force for Black Art in the future, we are asking for assistance in operating costs like rent, supplies, and materials. We want to become a solid and sustaining artistic force in Tulsa.
Going into our fourth year, we realize what steps we need to take to stay on this trajectory of success and accomplishment. With our rapid growth, we are putting things in place so that we can accomplish this. We do not want to survive strictly off of campaigns like this gofundme account. We just want to give ourselves a better starting point to create opportunities that will allow us the time and space to establish ourselves as a non-profit and to apply for grants and residencies to sustain us in the long run.
Black Moon would like to thank every one of you who has supported us in words, wisdom, kindness, generosity, time, and encouragement. We would not be where we are today had it not been for the people around us that continue to push and mold us into our best selves. We cannot express enough how much it means to us to be able to reside in a place that desires our artists to succeed. With your gift, we will continue to also find ways to give back to others. Thank you!
