About the Gallery

The Pick Progress Gallery is a curated collection featuring over 70 posters created by Black artists worldwide. These posters are a visual representation of phrases of Black empowerment, contributing to a rich tapestry of narratives within the Pick Progress project. Additionally, the gallery showcases 31 different plastic afro-combs, each etched with empowering phrases, and offers a glimpse into the diverse perspectives shared by Black individuals through quotes from interviews. Curated by Chandler Johnson, the gallery provides an authentic portrayal of Black culture, celebrating creativity, identity, and resilience.
