Urbana Arts & Culture and The College of Fine and Applied Arts invite all Champaign-Urbana BIPOC artists, creatives, makers, storytellers, and cultural bearers to connect and unwind with an evening of togetherness at Gallery Art Bar in Downtown Urbana.
Join hosts Carolyn and Vivian from The College of Fine and Applied Arts and the Urbana Arts & Culture Program for the kick-off event of the newly formed CU BIPOC Artist Collective. Local creatives who identify as Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color are invited to connect with others, enjoy refreshments and discuss the future of the BIPOC artist community in Champaign-Urbana. The event will take place at Gallery Art Bar located on Main Street in downtown Urbana. Goodie bags will be available for the first 40 guests who arrive!
December’s event will be the first scheduled of quarterly gatherings for the collective.
