Black & Pink Staff Holiday Coloring Contest!

Join Black & Pink staff in celebrating the holiday season!

Join our staff in celebrating the holiday season by voting on your favorite version of our holiday artwork! Please vote by Monday, December 21st! 

This piece was created by Ang Bennett for our annual Holiday Card Campaign, and is being sent inside to all of our incarcerated members to spread some love during the holiday season. Ang is an Omaha-based mixed media artist, curator, and advocate. They are a 2020 Young, Black, and Influential award recipient for Creativity. Ang represented the state of Nebraska in the Mana Urban Arts Get out the Vote poster campaign. Their art practice focuses on past and present themes of racial inequity, class privilege, and LGBTQIA2S+ identities.

“I wanted to showcase women throughout history on the frontlines of equity and justice by any means necessary; women who were and are full of light and love, while also being a strong force. I also wanted to honor the memory of our most recently departed, Monica Roberts. Thank you to Black & Pink for entrusting me with this project.” -Ang Bennett

At the holidays … and always.” Images include an older man by a flower box giving a flower to a person wearing a hijab, a person on the phone holding a small child, a person throwing a paper airplane to a seated person, a person with a beard chatting with a woman who is inside prison using prison communication software and finally, a person with shoulder-length hair reading a letter.
