1xRUN is proud to present Most of My Heroes Don't Appear On No Stamps, an ongoing series to coincide with Black History Month, featuring guest curator Greg Cummins. Inspired by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power", Most of My Heroes is a collection of African-American artists rewriting history through fine art "stamp" editions, lauding their own heroes.
"My Heroes Don’t Appear On No Stamps is my personal tribute to an array of amazing emerging artists. Inspired by Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power”, the exhibit utilizes an actual stamp medium to showcase the work of each artist. When most people think of Black History Month, they think about contributions from a time long gone. These are the innovators that are shaping the future of the culture and writing tomorrow’s histories. The most exciting time in my opinion is always the time that lies ahead." –Greg Cummins, Curator
"The works in this collection are selected from a wide variety of emerging African-American artists. I realize that most artists aren’t great self promoters, they don’t seek publicity. Anytime I can provide an opportunity for artists to exhibit or get exposure I gladly assist." – Greg Cummins, Curator
