Art Bingo...welding and sand casting classes ...percussion performance in an ice bar...painting to live blues... a tropical interpretation of the Fort Point channel...photos and couture hair-do...open rehearsals...music, dance, theatre, public art...the Spring edition of ArtWeek brings a full array of artistic and creative experiences to Boston!
ArtWeek Boston kicks-off its second season April 25 - May 4, as more than 60 events - collaborations of more than 140 organizations and partners - involve, invigorate and ignite imaginations and interaction through 12 Boston neighborhoods, and outside the city, in Cambridge, Somerville, and Lowell. Reflecting growth of more than double the size of the inaugural ArtWeek last fall, the Spring edition offers events for all audiences, including families, sleek sophisticates, young professionals, and cognoscenti, featuring global cultural experiences from free to $50.
"During the Spring ArtWeek, audiences can experience a vast range of cultural experiences," said Joe Spaulding, CEO and President of Citi Performing Arts Center, in announcing the schedule. "Take a Capoeira class to live music; sit in on a rare, open rehearsal at Emmanuel Music; join "Fork and Tune," a dining experience that uses an iconic pop album as inspiration for a 7 course meal; visit an art exhibition in a shipping container at the Flash Forward Festival on the Rose Kennedy Greenway; or experience the only classical music concert in Greater Boston dedicated to Latino composers! These collaborations between the creative community and area businesses create innovative experiences, spanning multiple disciplines, to neighborhoods throughout the city."

Each ArtWeek event links with local partners to enhance the participant experience, drive neighborhood economic impact, and build awareness about the area's creative economy.
