Regine Malibiran's feature for Austin Woman profiles Dawn Okoro's winding journey as an artist, and explores the ways in which the absence of structural support can be a significant barrier for Black creatives. The success of Okoro's exhibition Punk Noir at the George Washington Carver Museum, Culture and Genealogy Center in Austin, Texas, demonstrates the important role Black museums play in bolstering an artist's career.

“I always knew I wanted to be an artist, but not how to be an artist." - Dawn Okoro
