MZ Wallace is proud to partner with The Underground Museum on this special limited edition Metro Tote and Metro Pouch.
Featuring the work of the visionary artist (and The Underground Museum’s cofounder) Noah Davis, our collaboration celebrates the late painter’s life, as well as his commitment to creating a space for art and community — for everyone.
100% of the net proceeds from this sale of this collaboration support The Underground Museum’s efforts to increase access to art in underserved communities.
“Ultimately, I want to change the way people view art, the way people buy art, the way people make art. I believe … that art can function in everyday life. I strive for an artistic legacy that not only transcends blackness but confluences and impacts all cultures.”
— Noah Davis
