The West Orange Arts Council (WOAC) would like to invite all our members, from the emerging artist to the professional, to submit work representative of what Juneteenth “Freedom Day” the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the U.S. means to them. On display during the month of June and part of July, this exhibit is part of the 2024 Juneteenth Film Festival Celebration events in West Orange. WOAC provides gallery space, marketing support (calendar listings, press release, social media, and emails to contacts).
