The Color Of Art: A documentary film by David Weathersby. OFFICIAL SELECTION, 2018 Black Harvest Film Festival, Chicago. OFFICIAL SELECTION, 2019 Pan African Film & Arts Festival, Los Angeles. WINNER, Best Film Director, 2018 Black Excellence Awards (African American Arts Alliance of Chicago).

This lively and informative documentary explores the present-day renaissance of black art in Chicago, centered on neighborhoods such as Bronzeville and organizations such as the South Side Community Arts Center and the Hyde Park Art Center. Diverse and talented artists such as RJ Eldridge, Shyvette Williams, and Jesse Howard are profiled, but, rather than focusing on isolated creators, the film examines the ecosystem of artists, gallery owners, curators, and collectors that sustains the movement. There is a special emphasis on the relationships between artists and collectors, which are especially close and crucial in the black arts movement. After the screening, stay for a Q & A with director David Weathersby, and Jesse Howard, one of the artists featured in the film.
