Boston AIR: Projects in Process
Sat, March 4, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM EST
"Arts and culture form the building blocks that make our city thrive. They encourage us to engage with each other and connect to the larger community, Boston AIR brings this creative practice into the work of our city departments.”
- Mayor Walsh
Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture, Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF), and the Boston Art Commission invite you for a first look at the exciting civic practice projects currently under development by this year's ten Boston Artists-in-Residence.
These ten local artists have been working in a variety of media, from poetry to drumming to finger-knit basketball nets to coding and electronics, alongside representatives from BCYF and other City departments to fulfill a commitment made in Boston Creates, the city’s cultural plan, to promote creative thought in municipal problem-solving and project implementation. Join us on March 4th for a welcome by Julie Burros, Chief of Arts and Culture, and William Morales, Commissioner of Boston Center for Youth + Families before the presentations by all ten Boston AIR artists!
