Thank you for checking out the Columbia Museum of Art Student Galleries online!
For our very first Online Student Exhibition, we invited all students (K-12 and College) to submit a work of art you've created that is inspired by Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite. All submissions will be entered into a raffle to win a museum gift! This online student exhibition is presented in partnership with the Friends of African American Art & Culture, a CMA membership affinity group.
The submission deadline was August 31.

Though the idea of “the Strong Black women” can help it can also hurt the image of black women. This trope can pressure us to hide our emotions and be the superhero to the surrounding people. I want this piece to show the soft side of black women, that we can be unapologetically vulnerable.
Today, being at the heart of a protest isn't the only way to show support for a cause as noble as Black Lives Matter. In the digital age, activists around the world can fight together for equality, justice, and peace. This photo composite was pieced together with images taken by the artist at Black Lives Matter protests held in Columbia, SC.
