PUBLISH YOUR ARTWORK

A FREE MARKETPLACE FOR ARTISTS

Welcome to BlackArtConnect, a free art marketplace that seeks to empower thousands of artists by helping them reach new audiences and sell their work more easily. BAC gives you access to a wide range of high quality products, just waiting for your designs to make them even more amazing and original. We coordinate everything from printing and shipping through to ongoing customer service, giving you more time to focus on creating great art and design (and occasionally watching silly videos on the Internet).

BlackArtConnect.com partners with a vast network of websites targeting professional African Americans including HBCUconnect.com, BlackNews.com, BlackHistory.com, BlackRomance.com, BlackJobs.com, AfricanAmericanCareers.com, BlackArtNews.com and BlackArtPR.com, in total reaching more than 2 million subscribers.

We want to publish your artwork and avail it to our network of more than 2 million professional African Americans, who are most likely, your immediate buying audience.  We take our brands to all 105 HBCU campuses, as well as to select events attracting thousands of African Americans.  We’re marketing experts and artists who are passionate about marketing African American art and artists.

 

To publish your art, we print images using your provided high-resolution photo/scan of your image, or you may arrange to mail your original work to us to be scanned.

All of our published artists receive a pre-negotiated commission rate for each image and are paid monthly based off of revenue after any associated shipping costs.
