We are honored to one of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage's 2022 grant recipients!

Check out the first article for Seen Journal's online-only column, Observed! The piece dives into the work of Emma Amos, a prolific painter, printmaker, and textile artist.

"While her experimentation with combining disciplines and mediums broke open formal traditions, her artistic choices were also always politically situated...[Emma Amos's] aim was to visualize the depth, richness, and plurality of Black life," writes Rachell Morillo.
