The Somerville Arts Council presents:
ArtBeat 2020- Chance
July 10-18, Citywide
ArtBeat is Somerville's annual multi-media cultural event, featuring music, dance, public art and more. As chance would have it, the concept of ArtBeat has been reimagined this year into a series of cultural happenings that engage the public both virtual and throughout the City.
The festival is very much ON, albeit in a different form this year—over the course of 8 days, we’ll have some virtual performances as well as some safe real-life happenings, such as art installations popping up and poetry hitting the streets. We believe art plays a more crucial role than ever, in promoting community, supporting our collective mental health, and providing a means for expression and protest. This year the festival theme is “Chance,” which explores all things fluky, unexpected and unplanned. The theme—and our beautiful graphic, designed by Paula Champagne—turned out to be more timely and poignant than we could have imagined. Look for a detailed lineup within a week or so, until then, mark your calendars!
