At each fair edition, Affordable Art Fair NYC dedicates space to an emerging artist or recent graduate. The 2016 edition features New York-based mixed media and collage artist, Delano Dunn, whose work explores racial identity and perception.

His series entitled In Our Time investigates the simultaneity of the 1960’s American space race and the Civil Rights Movement.  The blended imagery of astronauts and civil rights activists create a visual tether between NASA’s expansion of the “American Dream” and the African American struggle for dignity.
