Four featured artists are selected annually to be spotlighted at Art & Soul events and performances in the Indianapolis area. This special performance will include 2023 Featured Artists Brandon Douthitt (music), Crystal V. Rhodes (theater), and Jamichael Kyng Pollard (live drawings on canvas), plus Rob Dixon and more.
For 27 years, Art & Soul has helped advance the careers of Black artists in Indianapolis. Each year, the festival kicks off Black History Month and features public events that celebrate Black visual art, music, dance, and literature. Art & Soul, presented by Indy Arts Council, is supported annually by Lilly Endowment Inc.
“Art & Soul is an experience that speaks to the body, but also the soul, and it’s like being at a month-long Black family reunion for the arts.”
