Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States. The LOFT is proud to celebrate the innovation, art and strength of African Americans past, present and future.
2nd Saturday Art Walk
“WE JOURNEY – A Black History Month Art Exhibit”
They will all be displaying BRAND NEW works. Nikki has been working tirelessly on some of the most amazing works she has done so far. Demar has been digging deep and has a few new pieces that we won’t even see until we hang them. John has a studio full of work he is relentless finishing in time for this show. This is a very special show and you will not want to miss it.
Three local artists…one night. Their art will remain up for the duration of the month and most pieces will be for sale (prints are available as well). Come out meet the artists.

We are honored to have with us in the LOFT, Boxing trainer and artifact collector, Bernard Roberts. A celebratory yet difficult look into Black American History.
Bernard has been collecting unique items for years and has graciously opened his collection of signed books, art, photographs and more to display in the LOFT.
His unique collection of books, artifacts, images and memorabilia promises to challenge us and solemnly look into our past as we press towards our future.
Many of these items are extremely rare and are not publicly on display.
