Who We Are

ROHO Collective is a network for the exchange of knowledge between visual artist of color in the Midwest.  We serve as a consolidated voice and platform for both emerging and professional artist of color by providing a place for development in technical skills, professional growth and business opportunities.  We take responsibility in ensuring our communities are educated about the value of the arts in our society, and we advocate for the arts both locally and nationally.

Where We've Been

Our road is well traveled.  We come from many different backgrounds, have a wide range of artistic talent, and as a Collective, have formed a solid group of creative individuals with an endless supply of imagination.
