In celebration of Black History Month, New Americans Museum is highlighting Black Artists all month long.

First, we have Jean-Michel Basquiat. An exceptional artist whose work of art revolutionized the art world.

Basquiat was born in Brooklyn, New York, on December 22, 1960. With a Haitian-American father and a Puerto Rican mother, Basquiat's diverse cultural heritage was one of his many sources of inspiration.

A self-taught artist, Basquiat began drawing at an early age on sheets of paper his father, an accountant, brought home from the office. As he delved deeper into his creative side, his mother strongly encouraged him to pursue his artistic talents.

Jean-Michel Basquiat first attracted attention for his graffiti under the name "SAMO" in New York City. He sold sweatshirts and postcards featuring his artwork on the streets before his painting career took off. He collaborated with Andy Warhol in the mid-1980s, which resulted in a show of their work. Basquiat died on August 12, 1988, in New York City.

Dear New Americans Museum Community - UC San Diego will be presenting a screening of an award-winning new documentary film, THE ITO SISTERS: AN AMERICAN STORY, on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the Price Center Theater. THE ITO SISTERS explores the early Japanese American experience and draws parallels between the Anti-Japanese Movement in the first half of the 20th century and today's anti-immigrant political climate. The UCSD screening event, which includes a Q&A with director Antonia Grace Glenn and scholar Evelyn Nakano Glenn, is free and open to all. For more information about the film, please visit: www.itosisters.com.
