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 historical or current day Black soldiers and heroes from all genders and any branch of the Armed Services. For too long, their valiant efforts, from the American Revolution to those in today’s military, have been overlooked. On display to commemorate Juneteenth, a National Celebration of Liberation, for this exhibit WOAC provides gallery space, marketing support (calendar listings, press release, social media, and email announcements to contacts). Artists are required to gallery assist at the West Orange Arts Center for a time slot on a Saturday (11am -4pm) and/or Sunday (12-3pm) to welcome guests. An artist’s presence connects us to our community and is a crucial part of exhibit operations. Choose your time slot on a Saturday (11am -4pm) and/or Sunday (12-3pm) to welcome guests.
