SAN DIEGO BLACK ARTIST COLLECTIVE

Share

One of the most difficult parts about being an artist is finding the space to show your work. In this version of Get On Board, we follow a group of black artists who make space for themselves. The show contains music, poetry, and dance that illustrate the joy and rage of the Black experience; through art we bare our souls. GET ON BOARD and go on this journey through Black music from drums to hip-hop.

Featuring local artists: Joy Yvonne Jones, Eboni Muse, Bryan Barbarin, Keomi Tarver, Zack King, Bre Eugenio, Erin Vanderhyde, Belinda Arnold, Matthew Arnold, Andra Caston, Tiffany Polite, and Leonard Patton.
