Juneteenth Jazz & Art Live Experience

Presented by Curb Center for Arts, Enterprise, and Public Policy at Vanderbilt and Nashville Jazz Workshop at Nashville Jazz Workshop, Nashville TN

Jun 19 2021
Juneteenth Jazz & Art Live Experience

Celebrate Juneteenth with a community art exhibit and children’s interactive art zone.

The event will showcase Nashville painter Omari Booker, glass artist and owner of This Little Light Glass Art Gallery and Shop Betty Turner, and the band Brassville.

Engaging with members of the community, Booker and Turner will oversee the creation of two large artworks. Booker will create an 8’x12’ “paint-by-numbers” mural about musician Bessie Turner, jazz music, Buchanan Street’s influence on music, and Juneteenth, and Turner will create a glass mosaic sculpture. Brassville will lead a march down Buchanan Street and perform two shows on the festival stage.

Additionally, the Booker and Turner artworks will be featured in the Art of Healing Exhibition, sponsored by the Curb Center and Vanderbilt’s Masters of Public Health Program, scheduled to open on September 17, 2021 and run until December 16, 2022.
