The 2023 JuneTEENth celebration at the Allentown Art Museum highlights the creative expression of local teen artists of color. AAM is partnering with Fine Feather Foundation, an education and creative-arts program for teens in Allentown, to host a series of artist-led workshops in the areas of dance, visual art, and poetry. Through these workshops, teens will explore the impact of creativity and expression on mental health and mindfulness and develop a self-directed project or work of art on the theme. The collaboration will culminate in an exhibition and performances on Sunday, June 18.
