Art In Color Video Series

Art in Color is a video series created by curator and culture writer Jaelynn highlighting the works and lives of contemporary artists of color. The goal of the series is to connect people (casual art enthusiasts, educators and students alike) with museums spaces and art works they otherwise would not have access to. Though the series begins with artists and works in Texas museum spaces, the videos will eventually expand to discuss the works of several artists around the world. Jaelynn is a fourth year BA Art History major pursuing a minor in African and African Diaspora Studies. Her curatorial practice revolves around varying notions of identity-based diaspora and border crossing in contemporary American art. She is currently curating One for Us, a show exploring the artistic identities of Texas women of color across several mediums. Walls is also the 2019-2020 Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow at The Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
