The arts have a vital role to play in our understanding of each other -- giving voice and visibility to infinite narratives. When you give to AGBS, you are making an important statement. You are providing access to art spaces which celebrate and support artists of the Black Diaspora -- affirming that people of all colors, and their stories, belong in art spaces.
YOUR GIFT IMPACTS
EVERY PART OF THE GALLERIES
ART AS AN EDUCATOR
College-aged and K-12 students are exposed to artistic expression that focuses on the representations of historically excluded communities.
ART AS AN EQUALIZER
Our galleries provide platforms for both emerging and well-established artists to share their work, connect with one another, and forge connections with scholars across our campus and beyond.
ART AS A TRAINING GROUND
Students are provided paid opportunities to cultivate their understanding of gallery administration.
ART AND ARCHIVE INITIATIVE:
INTEGRATING UT'S ARCHIVAL AND ARTISTIC LEGACY
Recognizing the power of inclusivity, AGBS collects artworks, archival material, and ephemera by and about Black people across the globe, for our collection and other institutions on campus. Representation matters. These efforts, guided by faculty, staff, students, and community, are making UT Austin a significant site to study the art and material culture of the Black diaspora. Give today to support The Art and Archive Initiative, the most dynamic collection effort on campus.
