NBAF's 30th Anniversary

"Experience Black Art"

Your generous support has made the National Black Arts Festival the premier US arts organization celebrating the work of artists of African descent – artists who have shaped our global culture and given us works of art that move us and inspire our children.

Our annual festivals, world-class performances, exhibitions and commissioned works bring extraordinary experiences to thousands of people every year. Our education and mentoring programs open doors for young people, uplift emerging artists and sustain the careers of working artists.


We invite you to become a member of our 30th Anniversary Society "Experience Black Art" with an annual commitment of $3,000 or more and ensure these programs continue.

The arts unlock our full human potential and give us tools for living and bring joy, creativity and inspiration…….

  • Our open-air arts festivals present the visual arts, dance, and music to families.
  • Film screenings take them around the world to explore different cultures.
  • Gallery events directly connect them with visual artists and their work.
  • Visual arts and dance education in low-income neighborhood schools unlock talent and shape futures.
  • Training programs introduce young people to careers in the creative and applied arts and prepare them to compete in the 21st century economy.
  • Competitions and mentoring for students in university arts programs lead to public exposure and success

As a "Experience Black Art" Society Member, you will receive several benefits for $3,000 including….

  • Two invitations to two intimate gatherings and artists talks at private homes in 2018
  • A copy of our NBAF 30th Anniversary Book, T-shirt and a commemorative artwork presented after the 2018 Season
