Learn how to submit art for a new Juneteenth exhibit from ARTSWIN and EAAM

The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana and the Evansville African American Museum are partnering on a fine arts exhibit in honor of the newest national holiday, Juneteenth.

“Lift Every Voice” is an exhibit celebrating Juneteenth and Black joy, but also an exhibit that will examine the ongoing struggle for social justice. Artists are encouraged to submit work around this theme, or to help educate the public about Juneteenth, the black experience, or the history of social justice in our country.

Juneteenth is a federal holiday on June 19 commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Black Americans.

Entry for this exhibit is a bit different. This exhibit will require each participant to be a member of the Evansville African American Museum. For more information and instructions how to pay museum member dues can be found on their website here. There are no other fees to enter this exhibit.

Accepted work will be displayed at Arts Council’s Bower Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery from June 14 to July 15. There will be a reception on June 18 with a special On The Roof concert featuring Soul n the Pocket following the reception.
