Party for Tomorrow
April 30, 2017 at 6:30 pm–9:30 pm
During a time of protests, sit-ins, teach-ins, and political upheaval, it can be easy to get burnt out – and to forget that art is also a crucial component of creating the future we want to see. Join artists from across the metro-Boston area in celebrating the vast potential for art to heal, unite, question, enlighten, and change the course of the future. Let’s party like there is a tomorrow – and we will shape it!
Featuring performances from acrobats and aerialists of Esh Circus Arts, dancers from OrigiNation, comedian Wes Hazard, and funk/soul band Johnny Blazes and The Pretty Boys, as well as a silent auction, free appetizers, and participatory art-making!
All proceeds benefit the Scholarship Fund at Neighborhood School in Jamaica Plain. $25 General Admission, $15 Students and Artists. Please pay the ticket level that you can afford! 18+
More about the participatory visual art:
– Help create a sculpture with your drawing or writing of a vision or hope for the future. The sculptures will be assembled and given away as door prizes at the end of the night.
– Figure Drawing hosted by the Sherman Street Art Collective: take turns drawing and being drawn by local artists and other party-goers. You may discover a latent talent you didn’t know you had – everyone is welcome, no matter the experience or skill-level! Sherman Street Art Collective believes that there is power in truly taking the time to look at one another, to see and be seen in a deeper way than our every-day interactions allow.
