Join us on site at the MFA for a day of activities and programs to celebrate Juneteenth and honor the contributions of Black artists, scholars, and creative voices to the City of Boston.
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally observed commemoration of the ending of slavery in the US.
Throughout the day, make art inspired by “Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation,” see a concert curated by BAMs Fest, and catch a screening of Summer of Soul, a documentary from legendary musician Questlove featuring unearthed footage from the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival.
All events and activities are free and take place in person on the MFA’s outdoor campus.
Admission into the MFA is free on Saturday, June 19, in honor of Juneteenth. Free timed-entry tickets for general admission and special exhibitions will be available to reserve at 10 am on June 15.
