Delray Beach, FL—The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum has long been at the forefront of promoting education, history and creativity in Delray Beach. Now, the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum along with Cultural Arts Performance & Education mentoring (CAPE Universal) and other nonprofit organizations are continuing their community reach in a whole new way.
On February 17th, in celebration of Black History Month, CAPE Universal and the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum will collaborate again, to present the 2023 Black History Youth Art Awareness Festival (BHYAAF). Hosted outdoors at the Spady Museum, this community project aims to engage Palm Beach County youth and community organizations through art, music and Black history.
“My dream for this is to bring all of Palm Beach County together through black history and art,” said Anthony Bacchus. In addition to his role as Director of Partnerships for Milagro Center, Bacchus is the organizer of BHYAAF 2023 bringing the community partners, teachers, parents, and students together as one.
BHYAAF is seeking participation from the local community to contribute in numerous ways, including a call for art and performances. Participants are asked to create artwork on 8.5” x11” size format to be displayed at the event. Submitted art will be judged by the community for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes to be announced live at the event. To participate please visit bhyaaf.net
The Black History Youth Art Awareness Festival will take place February 17th, 2023 from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, located at 170 NW 5th Ave, Delray Beach, FL 33444.
