Plans are in place for City Gallery at Waterfront Park in Charleston to host the 2021 MOJA Arts Festival Juried Art Exhibition, from September 30 – October 10, 2021. This annual juried art exhibition highlights the recent work of artists across South Carolina featuring painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, and photography. Seabrooker Simone Voelker has been selected to exhibit several of her sculptures in this prestigious event. Admission to the City Gallery is free and it will be open every day of the festival from noon until 5:00 pm.
The MOJA Arts Festival is a celebration of African-American and Caribbean culture. Moja, a Swahili word meaning “One”, emphasizes harmony among all people of our community and highlights the many African-American and Caribbean contributions to western and world cultures. Due to continuing safety concerns about COVID-19, the 2021 MOJA Arts Festival will not incorporate its traditional platform of large scale free public events and ticketed performances by national and international artists. A series of MOJA events scaled to mirror current CDC guidelines for safe public assembly in both outdoor venues and indoor facilities is anticipated. Click here to visit their website.
Details of other specific programs will be posted as they are finalized on mojafestival.com and on the CharlestonArts.org calendar, as well as on MOJA’s Facebook page.
