The 4th Street Photo Gallery home to the non-profit Minority Photographers in 1972, is at risk of closing due to continued gentrification and marginalization of POC artists spaces. Please HELP KEEP US OPEN!

Our goal is to keep the doors open and continue with work and student apprenticeships for 5 more years to make it to the 50TH ANNIVERSARY of the space and organization. Check out the incentives to get a historical piece from Alex's private collection of images that span the 1950's to the present!
