In the past two weeks BYA shared page space with so many friends, collaborators, inspiring artists, community workers, and businesses! Our cheeks hurt from cheesing so hard at the excitement of it all!
BYA was featured in BmoreArt's 4th issue, which explored the idea of Community. A good portion of the BYA #squad was photographed in Gallery CA during our last exhibition, "Young, Black and, Gifted," that youth collaborated on with Shan Wallace. We are so excited to be alongside the others who are featured in this magazine- get yourself a copy HERE.
YESTERDAY we found out that we received "Best Artists" in City Paper's final "Best Of" : ( We were beyond honored to get this news and it gave us a good push to keep making the things we are making!
Congratulations to Shan, Platform Gallery, Malcolm Peacock, Ginevra Shay, Press Press (neighbors!), The Walters (neighbors!), Jessica Hyman, Dovecote, Cafe Andamiro (the cafe started by our future Gallery Coordinator, Bomin), Red Emma's, Ryan Dorsey and everyone else!
It warms our heart to see all of y'all doing your thing <3
We are all so sad to see City Paper go. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you <3
