Your local guide to what’s happening in Boston — with a flair for the avant-garde.
Remember that a couple of weeks ago we talked about ArtWeek in Massachusetts? Well, this statewide art event is coming to Studio Allston! As the most creative hotel in Boston, we jumped at the opportunity to host a unique event. Read on to find out more.
First things first, if you haven’t read our post on ArtWeek 2019, do so now. Find out everything about the festival, special programs, locations and cost. And now, la pièce de résistance!
Studio Allston Hotel has partnered with artist Liz Tran and the West End House to bring you a two-day series of art activations throughout the hotel. Come join us and participate in creating a series of paper lantern sculptures. We will paint them, stack them and showcase them with the help of kids of West End House. But wait, there’s more! Florida-based DJ, Tha Balance King, will be spicing things up a bit with live music.
Given that ArtWeek MA is, at its core, an inclusive art festival aiming to inspire, Studio Allston will be displaying artwork created by kids at West End House, available for purchase. All proceeds from these sales will support West End House!
Date: Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 11am to 3:30pm. Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 4pm to 8pm.
Location: Studio Allston Hotel, 1234 Soldiers Field Road, Boston, MA 02135
Cost: Completely free and open to the public! Online registration is required.
