The New Art Center (NAC) and Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) in cooperation with the Harvard Allston Education Portal are presenting Beasts of Burden, curated by Jane O'Hara, from March 13 - May 5, 2014 at the Harvard Allston Education Portal in Allston, MA. A public reception some of the 13 artists is Thursday March 13th from 5:30 - 8:00 pm. Parking and entance map HERE>>
The collaboration resulted from a shared interest in engaging and educating the public through group exhibitions that expand the curatorial dialogue in the Greater Boston area. Beasts of Burden originated through the New Art Center's open call program, the Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP). Through exhibitions and their related programming, artists and diverse communities connect by investigating contemporary culture through the visual arts.
Beasts of Burden, a boisterous exhibition of artwork in diverse media, will be installed in the Harvard Allston Education Portal galleries. Boston based artist and curator Jane O'Hara is "intrigued by the schizophrenic relationship society has with animals."
