Columbia Artists | Making Art During the BLM Movem...

Presented by Free Times at Online/Virtual Space

Columbia artists talk about making art during the current Black Lives Matter movement

Within days of the world seeing video of George Floyd being killed during a brutal altercation with police officers in Minneapolis, Minn., Columbia artists began responding to a moment that would only become clearer in the days ahead. A song here, an image there. Many are older works presented with new context, but all suggest that the surge of protests was also pushing a surge of artistic endeavors.

For some, like mixed media visual artist Cedric Umoja, the energy rippling across the country only intensified his current efforts.
