Juneteenth Freedom Day Presented by The Juneteenth Committee in Partnership with The Town of Huntington At Manor Field Park, Huntington Station

Saturday, June 22, 2024 (Rain Date: June 23)
1 – 6 pm

The Heckscher Museum is happy to be part of this community event held in Manor Field Park in Huntington Station! Join Huntington-based multi-disciplinary artist and activist Maïa Gomes as she leads the creation of the Heckscher Museum of Art Unity Banner. Maïa is a young, queer, black artist that celebrates her intersectionalities through her art. Hailing from a Haitian and Senegalés household, she has been inspired to express her experiences using bright colors, movement, and many different textures and patterns. Maïa is also an activist for human rights and hopes to change the world someday. Her art is a reflection of her journey and is the legacy she wishes to leave behind! 

All are invited to contribute to this community work of art that will celebrate African American culture, history, and achievements, while also acknowledging the ongoing necessity to remain resilient in the ongoing fight against systemic racism and injustice. Come celebrate Freedom. Come celebrate Juneteenth. Come home to Huntington where history is not forgotten, it’s celebrated! The day will include: historical reflections, music, dancing, food trucks, giveaways, raffles, cultural experiences and much, much more throughout the day. Bring lawn chairs!
