Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

The Black Arts Council of Racine hosted its first Halloween themed art contest for African American youth ages 11-19. The contest drew contestants from around Racine. As a result, the winners announced on Saturday, October 24th.

Check out the winners below.

Further, the BAC is a 501(c)3 started by local artist and owner of Art By April Studio, April Harris.

April said she “started the arts council as a way to highlight and develop local African American artists and encourage them to pursue their artistic passions.”

Further, the Black Arts Council has a Facebook page for those who want to know more.

The BAC of Racine is looking for those who want to highlight their talents in future events. Including but not limited to painting, poetry, filmmaking, etc.
