Juneteenth

June 19 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Juneteenth is a significant day in American history, celebrated on June 19th to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Juneteenth represents freedom, unity, and the ongoing struggle for civil rights.
At the museum, we’ll be learning about Alma Thomas, an influential African American artist, who made her mark in the art world with her vibrant abstract paintings. Her bold use of color and geometric shapes captured the essence of nature and earned her recognition as the first African American woman to have a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1972. Thomas’s artwork continues to inspire and resonate, reflecting themes of joy, hope, and resilience.
