#IAMBLACKAUSTIN portrait unveiling at City Hall
Thursday, January 8, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
On Jan. 27, the Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce will open the #IAMBLACKAUSTIN Modern Black Portrait Exhibit at Austin City Hall from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Images from the exhibit will remain on display through Feb. 3. The #IAMBLACKAUSTIN exhibit is an interactive campaign “highlighting the multidimensional expression of Black life in Austin, Texas.” Individuals represented in the exhibit have contributed to the African-American community in the (rapidly gentrifying) city, and the collection aims to “serve as a visual historical reference that reclaims a space that would otherwise be forgotten.” Throughout the exhibit, individual members of the community will be highlighted, and portraits at the unveiling will include City Manager Marc Ott, Deputy City Manager Michael McDonald, Chantell Moody, DJ Hella Yella and Ebony Stewart.
