Black Ball Projects is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization
Black Ball Projects was founded in 2015 as a space by artists for artists.
In 2019 we became an official 501(c)3 Non-Profit Arts Organization. Our current Board of Directors are: Linus Borgo, Palma Blank, Kelly Chang (President), Damien Davis, Pia Dehne (Secretary), Diana Delgado, Jac Lahav & myself: Ana Wolovick (Treasurer/Executive Director.
Black Ball Project's mission is to serve and support contemporary artists who are underexposed and who have been working diligently on the periphery of the greater art world. Diversity of all kinds, be it gender, racial, or economic, is at the core of our organization.
During the pandemic, Black Ball Projects re-organized from a physical gallery to an online platform, where we have presented online viewing rooms (solo and group shows) and promoted the works of the artists involved through our website, social media presence, and newsletters to the wider art world. In 2021, thanks to the many generous donations from our supporters, we were able to launch our inaugural micro-granting program, which gives direct financial support to artists in need. Black Ball Projects is currently funded solely through independent donations and sales of donated works from participating artists.
History: Co-founded in October of 2015 by artists Ana Wolovick, Harriet Salmon and Jason Tomme. Brian Wondergem co-Curated/ Directed the space with Wolovick from June 2017-2018. In 2019 Black Ball Projects became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Since then, Ana Wolovick has served as the Executive Director. Over the past seven years Black Ball Projects has produced 29 physical exhibitions, four (going on five) online viewing rooms and created a micro-granting program for contemporary artists in need.
