    Celebrations...we love them. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays...count us in! But there is a new national holiday that resides within a category all its own. That holiday - Juneteenth - honors June 19, 1865's "General Order No. 3” which informed the slaves in Texas (the last to be notified) that they were free.

    The Alpharetta Arts Center, Arts Alpharetta, and Alpharetta's Black History Committee invite you to honor the Juneteenth holiday with your original art that expresses the emotion of that day. Congress has declared that "History should be regarded as a means for understanding the past and solving the challenges of the future.” Artwork may be 2- dimensional or 3-dimensional. All media welcomed.
