ArtWeek Boston to Offer 125+ Creative Events May 1 – 10

Boston – How would you like to paint with your food or learn to dance with the cast of Dirty Dancing? Or listen to an a capella concert in a distillery or join an Afro-Latin drum circle? What about sitting down to a meal inspired by the soundtrack of the cult classic movie Pulp Fiction? These are all part of ArtWeek Boston, a bi-annual, 10-day celebration of Greater Boston’s creativity made possible by 175 creative and business partners from May 1 – 10.

Presented by the Highland Street Foundation and produced by Citi Performing Arts Center, ArtWeek offers an exciting selection of more than 125 events in 45 neighborhoods and towns, including: Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Lowell, and expanded this year to Beverly, Brookline, Chelmsford, Concord, Framingham, Gloucester, Haverhill, Ipswich, Mansfield, Marion, Maynard, Medford, Natick, Needham, Provincetown, Salem, Sandwich, , Watertown, Wenham, and West Newton. The majority of events are free with 94% under $25. The complete calendar of events can be found at

Launched in Fall 2013 to rave reviews, ArtWeek highlights such things as pop-up dinner theater, immersive workshops in unusual places, and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks. Last year, the initiative was named a “50 on Fire” by BostInno and “Best of the New” by Boston Globe Magazine, and has been cited by Americans for the Arts as a national model for innovation. More than 25,000 people have enjoyed ArtWeek since inception.

ArtWeek is proud to collaborate with major media partners including WCVB-TV,, Boston Metro, the Improper Bostonian, and Greater Media (including radio stations Magic 106.7, Country 102.5, HOT 96.9. 92.9 WBOS, and WROR 105.7), Titan Cares, and CMT Taxi Media. Other supporters include the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism, FluidReview, W Boston Hotel, Long Haul Films, and CO Everywhere. All ArtWeek partners are passionately committed to enlivening and enriching creative communities for both residents and visitors in the City of Boston and beyond, and in continuing to build the reputations of Boston and the State of Massachusetts as exciting places to be.
