WELCOME

Last year, after 155 years of many celebrations, President Biden announces that Juneteenth (June 19) is officially a federal holiday. Yolo Juneteenth is proud to have been a faithful celebrant  with our community for the past 7 years.

 

This year we invite you to celebrate with us at the UC Davis Conference Center and the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art on Sunday, June 5 from 11-5pm.

Yolo Juneteenth Festival is supported, in part, by the City of Davis Human Relations Commission and Arts & Cultural Affairs Program; and with the support from the Culture C.O.-O.P, which promotes understanding and respect for diversity, equality, cultural competency, literacy and a quality education for all.

 

We’d also like to extend our gratitude to the UC Davis Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art for supporting this year’s celebration.

“What if every youth in our community made one work of Black art. Imagine how much we could learn from seeing art through their eyes. Imagine how unifying and impactful their work could be.”

 

This year youth in our community have the opportunity to contribute to this year’s festivities.

 

The “Make Black Art” project is a new experimental community learning experience that asks youth to research and discover a Black art subject of interest, then create or replicate that subject in any art form that their ability allows as a show of appreciation for the culture.

Ethically Made Artisan Wares by Nai-Muh & Modou

Our goal has always been to establish a direct connection between the local artisans handcrafting these ethically made pieces and the clientele that vibes at our frequency.

Nai-Muh creates designs and curate capsule collections, and Modou works directly with the artisans to procure Goldmarh's ethically made pieces. At Goldmarh, we believe in slow fashion and release ethically made capsule collections when they are complete. This ensures our artisans are not overworked.

Fine Art Paintings by TheArthur Wright

I portray African derived historical figures, be they African or African American. In general any ethnic figure, since daily it is becoming a lesser contended fact that life and the human race began there.

Watercolor is one medium and process that I have long used, but household bleach became my signature medium. Bleach on certain papers creates a bright gold residue and I can manipulate that to create my images.
