The day will conclude in the Abrams Claghorn Gallery with San Francisco based cellist, Mia Pixley (5:00 PM). This year, the gallery will feature the collective works entitled, Echoes of Freedom: On Juneteenth 2024. The artists highlighted in this body of work include, Otis Carpenter, Ajuan Mance, Tiffany Conway, Renata Gray, Fan Warren, TheArthur Wright and Orlonda Uffre.
