Celebrate creativity and community at the MFA’s Juneteenth event—the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. See works by local visual, fashion, and performance artists; join a tour or talk to learn about works acquired through the MFA’s Heritage Fund for a Diverse Collection, with a closer look at art by African Americans; and catch a screening from this year’s Roxbury International Film Festival—the largest New England film festival dedicated to celebrating films by, for, and about people of color.

Free admission for all starting at 4 pm on Wednesday nights (voluntary contributions welcome).


Juneteenth is presented in partnership with Epicenter Community.
