In celebration of Juneteenth, the Kimbell will offer free admission to the special exhibition The Language of Beauty in African Art on Sunday, June 19. Special thanks to the Nuestro Kimbell committee for their support of our community programs.

Juneteenth, established as a national holiday in 2021 through the efforts of Fort Worth’s own Opal Lee, commemorates the day that news of the Emancipation Proclamation ending slavery reached Texas.
