Juneteenth Celebration & Bloomberg Asphalt Art Dedication - The Gathering Place

Saturday, June 19, 2021

Norfolk's 2nd Bloomberg Asphalt Art mural "The Gathering Place" was created in honor of Juneteenth by local artist Dañetta Evans & community volunteers. Join Norfolk Arts for a Juneteenth Celebration & Asphalt Art Dedication. Dañetta's design features images highlighting the history of Double Dutch, African American quilting & the Underground Railroad. Following the dedication featuring a reading of an original poem created in recognition of Juneteenth by Ayana Askew, Hampton Roads Youth Poet Laureate Ambassador & remarks by Councilwoman Royster, enjoy a Double Dutch showcase, free food from Crop Circle Gourmet, "Copsicles" courtesy of the NPD, photo booth, music by DJ Jokin' Joe & more. This is the 2nd Asphalt Art project being created via a Bloomberg Asphalt Art Initiative grant Norfolk Arts received together with the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Virginia.
