Juneteeneth GSO Fest: 4th Annual Arts Legacy Awards

Fri, Jun 14, 2024

Join us as we celebrate Black artists who have created legacies in Greensboro and beyond! This event is semi-formal/formal with Afro-centric inspired dress code.

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 2024 honorees include the following person(s)/organizations:

Dance Artist: Wesley Williams

Music: Fred Mills

Photography: Toni Shaw

Poetry: Clement Mallory

Singer: Sybil

Special thanks to our sponsors: Creative Greensboro, City of Greensboro, and Lincoln Financial
