In honor of Juneteenth and its’ historic context, we extend our hopes for meaningful transformation through a visual art aesthetic, which seeks to transcend the dictates of historic exclusion of the Black experience. We honor and celebrate the commitment to preserving and celebrating the art of the African Diaspora, while exploring the boundaries of freedom, and cultural and creative excellence, through the Black visionary lens. This showcase of multiple genres, interprets and reclaims the history and culture of diverse voices. The creative pathways affirm aesthetic choices, freedom, and the visionary soul, to incorporate technical exploration and the beauty of familial connections. The expansion and illumination of Black visual culture, continues to impact the scope of consciousness, inclusion, and liberation.
