We recently joined the local Minneapolis based group TAWU (The Art Within Us). TAWU is a social support, artist development and growth organization for African American artists sponsored by Obsidian Arts. Obsidian Arts is a Minnesota non-profit arts space focused on celebration and development of black artists, arts institutions and artwork. Each year, TAWU provides its members with opportunties to gain broader exposure through sales, as well as activities that promote creativity and nurture the spirit and artistic mind.
In 2006, TAWU participated in the Spring Art Party, Juneteenth, GLBT Pride Festival, Powerhorn Art Fair and Freedom Jazz Festival.
We look forward to working with this group in 2007!
