Fine Art + Fashion 2020 Canceled
Out of concern and respect for our donors, guests and Title Sponsor Neiman Marcus, we have decided to cancel the rescheduled 2020 Fine Art + Fashion event. This was not an easy decision to make, but similar to many other organizations across the nation, we have made this decision with the safety of our community and the current public health environment in mind.
Fine Art + Fashion has been an important event for NBAF. Through its funding, NBAF has worked to fulfill its mission to recognize and support artists of African descent as well as expose, educate, engage and entertain our youth and broader audience. We are grateful to our funders, donors and sponsors for helping us to continue to provide arts education for middle and high school students, public programs and artistic development. NBAF is continuing to fulfill its mission and work for the arts community by pivoting thoughtfully and intentionally, taking most of our work virtual and supporting our artists through the NBAF Artist Project Fund.
As we learn more about the immediate and extended needs of those we serve, we need your gifts to help achieve the greatest impact and support our artist community in the best and most appropriate way. We ask for your continued support and hope that the gifts that you’ve made to Fine Art + Fashion 2020 will now become donations and that all pledges will be honored. The work goes on and now more than ever we need your steadfast support, particularly as we continue our efforts to address the inequities that exist for the black arts community that we represent.
We appreciate your continued partnership and we are extremely grateful to all of our dedicated donors, advocates and special friends. Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support!
