Very cool.Today we are celebrating two National Endowment for the Arts awards! The first is to LAND studio and the Metrohealth Foundation to support artist and resident-led development of community gathering spaces in Clark-Fulton, home to Ohio’s largest Latinx population. The second will expand our Inner City Hues program in the Buckeye, Mount Pleasant, and Woodland Hills neighborhoods. Both grants involve a two-year process to work with stakeholders and community leadership to engage residents and artists in the creation of culturally relevant artworks. The work has begun and we can't wait to share our progress with you! https://buff.ly/37jmWm5

More information regarding a concerning incident at Zygote Press, Inc. a few days ago. The print shown in the accompanying image displays a wonderful writing by Toni Morrison, and it says it all...On Saturday, June 6th, members of the Zygote Press community organized artists to print signs, posters, and other material to provide to anyone marching to protest the tragic murder of George Floyd and to support racial equity movements. Due to COVID-19, the event took place outside, in the back of Zygote’s premise and was somewhat visible from the street. Towards the end of the event, the 15-20 participants were approached by 10-12 police officers and asked the purpose of the gathering and where the signs were going to be distributed. As one can imagine, being approached and surrounded by so many police is very intimidating and could have quickly escalated into a dangerous confrontation. We are aware, however, that since the printmakers and participants were mostly white, the police treated us differently than they may have if the participants were people of color, which is precisely the point of the demonstrations taking place throughout this country.
It is important to note that print has always been a medium of and by the people. The history of printmaking has its origins in protesting injustice. At this time the artists were printing in support of our Black and Brown friends, and family, fighting oppression. Core to Zygote’s mission and bylaws is to support artists while we “increase awareness about contemporary printmaking by creating active communication among artist printmakers and the broader community”. Zygote does not censor artists and believes in the freedom of creative expression. As we stated last week, “we, at Zygote Press, stand with all who are demanding racial justice.”
It must be acknowledged that this type of intimidation is nothing new to the Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the community. Zygote stands in support with all who are demanding racial justice and freedom of creative expression. Zygote does not condone this type of intimidation and will not stand for the censorship of artists.

Obviously, our event will not be happening this evening due to the public health crisis. We hope that all our friends and supporters are safe and healthy. ARTFUL looks forward to when we can get our artists back in their studios and back to creating. We will reschedule this celebration when we all have a clearer understanding of when it is safe to do so. Please support ARTFUL and all of your favorite art organizations by making a donation if you can. Organizations like ours find themselves in precarious situations and many of the loans and grants that are available as stimulus are not going to smaller arts organizations. Our local arts and culture scene is devastated, but determined. ARTFUL will continue to work with our artists to ensure they are able to keep their studios and maintain a safe working environment for them when we are allowed to open our doors once again. All our best to all of you, and thank you. #supportlocalartists #cancelledduetocoronavirus #wewillreschedule #thankyou ... See MoreSee Less
