Harriet Watson is a visual and tie-dye artist. Harriet is a member of the Eighteen Art Collective and painted the “A” in “Matter” in the “#Black Lives Matter” street mural in Indianapolis. After the mural, Harriet created Harriet Watson Art as a way to continue the artistry that came from the mural. Harriet decided to incorporate her love for tie-dye and typography to create clothes that started a conversation about social justice. Harriet also likes to paint portraits of herself and others that reflect the emotions that encompass being a young Black person in America. Harriet’s art is often inspired by the works of 70’s Black feminist artists such as Faith Ringgold and Adrian Piper.

Kori is an Indy-based digital and traditional artist. She aims to create artwork that curb-stomps tolerable, confining, unimaginative, shallow, and/or submissive depictions of Black American women in mainstream media. Less intense yet just as relevant, Kori also finds joy in creating ethereal, otherworldly art inspired by her earthly thoughts and feelings.
