The Bridgehampton Museum and Eastville Community Historical Society are joining together to present a unique and engaging Juneteenth celebration.

Nigerian artist Oluwaseyi Awoyomi will guide us as we delve into the captivating intersections of art, music and cultural heritage. Through engaging discussions and a guided art activity, we aim to uncover the profound symbolism of rhythmic patterns related to the human head in art, reflecting themes of unity, adaptability, and growth. Join us as we reflect on the historical significance of Juneteenth, the enduring power of music in times of struggle, and the rich cultural tapestry of folkloric songs and traditions that inspire resilience and preserve identity. Guests will also get to enjoy strawberry mocktails and good company.
