A Selection of Important Works by Black Artists

Lots 16-28

During the Black Lives Matter protests in Boston this June, our gallery door was spray painted with the message “#BLM Do Better, Art World!”. With the consignment of thirteen works by Black artists to The Fall Auction, we have identified an opportunity to do so. Grogan & Company will contribute 5% of our proceeds from the sale of Lots 16–28 to Boston’s Artists For Humanity. Our donation will provide support to the next generation of BIPOC artists, and is meant to encourage others in the art world to take the challenge to “Do Better.”  Artists For Humanity provides under-resourced teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design. For more details, you may visit their website, afhboston.org.
