about the southwest black arts Collective

OUR Collective

The Network focuses on four things to support the artistic practices of its members: networking, collaborating, resource sharing, and exhibiting.

About the founders

Alanna Airitam, Elizabeth Burden and Elizabeth Denneau are working artists. They understand the challenges to establishing a significant presence of Black Arts in the Southwest: the Black population is small, there are few venues that present Black artists, and legacies of Blackness in the region are engulfed by other histories. So they started SBAC to provide spaces to connect and opportunities to exhibit for both established and emerging Black artists in the Southwest.

Upcoming events

Stay tuned; our fall 2023 calendar coming soon.
