At the Speed Art Museum, we invite everyone to celebrate art, forever. The Speed is also committed to acquiring and exhibiting work by artists who have been historically underrepresented in art museums. This page provides opportunities for learning, discovery, and exploration as we celebrate Black artists whose work is part of the Speed’s collection. Learn their stories, discover their art, get creative with activities inspired by their work, and explore resources for talking about race and racism with your family and in the classroom.

Black Artists Matter, and we hope that you will check back often as this page grows and evolves as we celebrate Black artists of the past, the present, and the future.
