3 Black Artists on Instagram I’m Digging (And So Should You)

Since I remain quarantined in my home (still), I’m committing myself to upping my home decor game. For me September will be ‘wake up my blank walls’ month intersecting with ‘support an independent black artist’ month. I don’t have to go far; there are a number of artists I follow and stan on my instagram feed, which I have curated t…. I’m just getting my coins together so I can really support. In the meantime, I’m spreading the word on these great artists.

Go on to IG and give these artists some love. If you patronize their online shops, shout me out on IG (@curating.stories) and let me know what you bought! I would love to see.

Side note: As art takes many forms, if you’re trying to find some mood music, take a peak at 5 songs I currently have on repeat.
