ArtWeek, the popular annual celebration of arts and culture in Massachusetts, is reinventing itself in 2020 as #ArtWeekAtHome. ArtWeek is produced by The Boch Center and presented by the Highland Street Foundation.
From May 1-10, ArtWeek event hosts and partners are posting links on social media to their online content including tours, concerts, at-home activities, or other creative programs while tagging #ArtWeekAtHome and @ArtWeekMA.
A ten-day ArtWeek Bingo game is offering daily artistic prompts and themed challenges celebrating different genres. The week-long schedule includes nods to music, museums, dance, crafts, theater, literature, the outdoors/public art, film, history, and the culinary arts.
#ArtWeekAtHome highlights will be shared at www.artweekma.org and on different social media channels.
Boch Center President & CEO Joe Spaulding says this year’s #ArtWeekAtHome “celebrates the creative community and its response to this unprecedented period, as ArtWeek partners and event hosts continue to bring joy, comfort, and inspiration to thousands of people every day during this crisis.”
Highland Street Foundation Executive Director Blake Jordan called this year’s #ArtWeekAtHome “a creative way to keep those partners and the amazing contributions they make every day to our communities center stage – especially during these times.”
The lead champions of #ArtWeekAtHome include the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. See full list of partners and sponsors here.
