Top Black Art Exhibits You Need to See

The art season has officially started and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m purchasing plane tickets and scoping out inexpensive Airbnb‘s.

There is also the option for taking up an accommodation on a short lease to really soak up all that creativity around, but that may need some research on rental options and required paperwork ( could be good place to start). The latter is especially essential to steer clear of any undesired surprises later. However, before I leave, I have some must see’s and our own co-sponsored exhibit

( yes, we have an event for October!)
