ArtTable invites you to celebrate our New York Benefit celebrating 2024 Distinguished Service to the Visual Arts honoree Linda Goode Bryant and New Leadership Award honoree Niama Safia Sandy.

Distinguished social activist, gallerist, and filmmaker Linda Goode Bryant is renowned for her groundbreaking initiative, Just Above Midtown (JAM), established in 1972. Through JAM, Bryant pioneered a commercial gallery showcasing Black artists and artists of color, emphasizing artistic freedom. JAM was celebrated in the Museum of Modern Art’s 2022 retrospective Just Above Midtown: Changing Spaces, which united works made throughout JAM’s fourteen-year tenure with a series of special performances, installations, and activations across New York City.

Niama Safia Sandy‘s work as a cultural anthropologist, curator, producer, multidisciplinary artist, and educator delves into the human story, often centering on stories of the Global Black diaspora. She currently hosts and produces FOR/FOUR, a weekly conversation series featuring Black women and non-binary persons in the arts. Niama recently co-founded The Blacksmiths, a coalition of culture workers forging support for Black liberation against racism in the academy and at presenting institutions. Through The Blacksmiths, Niama produces resources and events engaging communities, activists, and artists to close the gaps in opportunities for Black creators, curators, and administrators on the global stage.

Reserve your ticket now for a sparkling Benefit evening at the Upper East Side’s Bohemian National Hall—a gathering of ArtTable’s vibrant community of professionals in recognition of Linda Goode Bryant and Niama Safia Sandy.
