Next Season: April 26 - May 5, 2019

Redefining What “Art” Can Be

What does “art” mean to you? If you ask any one of our event hosts this question, you will likely get a wide range of responses. ArtWeek has not only doubled in size over the last year, but it has also expanded its reach by embracing experiences that fit many interests.

In the first few days of ArtWeek, there have already been events involving theatre, public art, dance, music, and more.

The Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival–Boston’s biggest block party–took place on Saturday, September 27, with outdoor performances that were free and open to the public.

Citi Performing Arts Center’s Education Team hosted an a series of empowering interactive readings of Kadir Nelson’s I Have a Dream picture book inspired by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Led by Citi Center’s Teaching Artist Toni Bee (seen above), the event featured interactive audience performances, allowing for an engaging participant experience.

ArtsEmerson and Urban Art Bar also took art into their own hands by combining the art of dance with the popular trend of art bars.

The cast of TRACES served as the muse to guests who transformed a blank canvas into their own visual interpretation of the spectacular cirque performance. Some participants even had some of their work put on display at the Cutler Majestic to be shown during the run of the show.

With dozens of ArtWeek events still in store for the upcoming weekend this Fall season is far from over. Take a look at the full calendar of events here. Will you #artweek?
