Artist Jordyn Brown Featured in Bel Air Library for Black History Month

African Americans and the Arts are being celebrated this February.

Happy Black History Month! In honor of Black History Month, BAHS will have many events each week in the media center, and an artist will be highlighted. Along with being highlighted, their art will be displayed outside of the media center.  

There are many events during this month to talk about, but this week it’s time to highlight a certain artist, Jordyn Brown. Her artwork was also featured recently in the Harford County NAACP.

In this feature, Jordyn says that this piece titled “Dangerous Animal,” was inspired by her father. Accordin to Brown’s bio displayed in the library, this piece was made to show the difference between how society sees black men and what she sees in her father; a protector and a supporter. In an interview, Brown also stated this piece portrays a concept that people would “get” just by looking at it, but could also create their own interpretation.  

This piece is important to her because of how much she cherishes it. It is also reassurance for her when it comes to her art. “It’s the first piece that I’m still satisfied with to this day,” Brown said. “It’s really nice to paint my dad.”
