Community Connections | Hunter Museum of American Art 7.0.33-0+deb9u12

Black Professionals @ the Hunter

Launched in 2018 by the museum’s African American Advisory Committee as part of a vision for making the Hunter more welcoming to Chattanooga’s African American community, Black Professionals @ the Hunter is a bimonthly series of art-focused social events at the museum.

Focused on community.connection.culture, each BPATH event features

    • Planned and organic networking opportunities
    • BP@TH Committee-led conversations inspired by artworks at the Hunter
    • Performances by local Black creatives (through the end of 2022, BP@TH has spotlighted more than 100 Black artists and performers)
    • Food, photography and other event services provided by Black-owned businesses

BP@TH brings together Black Chattanoogans from many professional backgrounds, including entrepreneurs, educators, medical professionals, government officials and creatives. From lifelong Chattanoogans to newcomers, from those starting their careers to those at the executive level, BP@TH draws together a community seeking a space curated for and by Black Chattanoogans who connect through experiencing and celebrating Black creativity and excellence.

BP@TH is generously supported by Unum, the Benwood Foundation, Coca Cola Bottling United and EPB.
