The Arts Legacy Awards

The Arts Legacy Awards takes place during the Juneteenth GSO Fest. It started in 2021, as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the legacy Black artists have made in Greensboro.

This formal ceremony will include an awards ceremony dinner with honorees and their guests as well as a tribute show designed to honor their service to our community. Greensboro has a rich arts history, but unfortunately, we don’t hear much about the contributions of Black arts institutions, artists, and arts administrators and we want to take time during Juneteenth to acknowledge and thank them for their contributions.

Our 2023 honorees include the following person(s)/organizations:

Dance: Cheryl Gould

Hip Hop: Dana Lucci

Visual Artist: James Raleigh

Music: Chris Robinson

Music: Shelby J

Special thanks to our sponsors: Creative Greensboro and City of Greensboro
