GRAFFITI ART PHOTOGRAPHS

DOCUMENTING THE CREATIVITY OF THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT

PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK AND EXHIBITION Organized and Curated by Tammy Cromer 

Jurors: Chris Johnson & Letitia Huckaby     


GeorgeFloyd_CJ600.jpg

This International Call for Entries seeks to celebrate the creativity of the Black Lives Matter Movement that captivated the nation and the world in 2020.  BLM graffiti art and art that celebrates diversity and peace continues to show up in cities across the country and the world.  These murals and graffiti feature artist’s hopes, frustrations, and sadness over the state of race relations and the lack of respect and kindness given to fellow human beings.  

“The BLM Graffiti Art grabbed my attention as I rode my bike through Deep Ellum and downtown Dallas.  The art was full of emotion and power. It occurred to me that this art was capturing a moment in history, a moment when Americans protested across America against injustice. I wanted to do something to immortalize this art and this time. I believe a photographic record complied in book format to document this history and art will be a powerful witness.”     Statement from Organizer and Photographer, Tammy Cromer

Photographs chosen for the book will be featured in an exhibition at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts in Longview, Texas. Tentative Exhibition Dates are January 15, 2022 – April 9, 2022.

ORGANIZER - TAMMY CROMER

Photographer Tammy Cromer, a native of Longview, Texas, has exhibited around the world and is in public and private collections. She has worked with various public institutions, private collectors, and curators to help maintain an active voice in supporting local and internationally recognized photographers. In 2006, University of North Texas Press published her first book, Fruit of the Orchard/Environmental Justice in East Texas. The publication addressed the sociological consequences of economic change and examined the long-term effects of modern technology on the human condition. Cromer’s involvement with the Winona Community heightened her sense of responsibility as a photographer to go beyond mere documentation and presentation, in order to embrace the fundamental ethics of using her talents and skills to convey messages that need to be heard. This project succeeded in documenting the negligent environmental polluting of a primarily African American community’s air suppy by a corporation. With Phyllis Glazer’s activism, monetary support, and Cromer’s photographs, the facility shut down in two short years.
