Talk: Saturday, June 17 at 1pm

In late 2022, as part of Riverworks Art Center’s first Community Roundtable Project, Sarah Matthews led a cohort of artists to the National Museum of African American History and Culture and then, through a series of conversations and workshops, Sarah guided the artists in creating individual art projects expressing their visual and emotional experiences. The culminating exhibit, FREEDOM at BlackRock Center for the Arts, features the powerful artwork made by each participant in response to the project.

This final Roundtable Discussion is part of BlackRock’s Juneteenth Freedom at the Rock Festival.
