The “Art & Soul: Hamptons” festival, which was produced and created by Yaya Reyes and will be co-hosted by the social group Brown Skin Brunchin’, will take place July 22 to July 24, and will showcase the best and brightest emerging and influential Black, Indigenous and artists of color in the Hamptons. Southampton African American Museum (SAAM), in collaboration with Southampton Arts Center (SAC), will host the opening reception at SAC, 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton. The director Philippe Musey will present a special screening of “The Inventor.”

In addition to supporting and connecting with artists, this weekend event will promote tourism in the Hamptons. Visitors will have the opportunity to experience an artistic walk featuring some of the residents: John Pinderhughes (SAAM) and Jeremy Dennis (Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio). A visit to Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio located on the Shinnecock Reservation will provide guests with an opportunity to learn about the Shinnecock Native American Nation.

“Dynamic works have been created by artists of color throughout history, but have lacked the level of exhibition and praise received by their counterparts. An event such as this is critical in the advancement of artists of color, as such exposure creates an opportunity for artists to present work to a larger audience, showcasing talent and brilliance within the community,” said Melissa Mason, co-founder of Brown Skin Brunchin’.

A highlight of the weekend event will be performances by Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Kenny Lattimore and Top 40 R&B/soul singer/composer Esnavi. The Black Culinary Expo will end the weekend with a culinary experience featuring soulful cuisine and cocktails prepared by celebrity chefs. Brown Skin Brunchin’ Long Island ambassador Michelle Mitchell will co-host a VIP Hamptons Brunch on Saturday, July 23. Details of the entire weekend can be found at
