The mission of Arts in the Park (ATP) is to cultivate awareness and appreciation of working artists across the various communities within Boston.
Boston celebrates the 5th year of Arts in the Park. ATP is a daylong event where Boston
artists are welcomed to Malcolm X Park in Roxbury, MA to create live art in public spaces. By turning the studio inside out, ATP offers Boston residents of all ages a look into the immense effort artists put into creating their pieces, fostering appreciation for the arts that is tangible and concrete. For the last four years, ATP has been a staple event in the Boston cultural community and has continued to reach broader audiences with each passing year.
This year’s innovative programming includes live music, a dance competition hosted by the Floorlords, a mobile farmer's market, face painting, 30 community organizations offering information about their programming, and a black men's panel entitled: Aspirations, Challenges, and Opportunities— Voices of Black Men in the Arts.
The theme of ATP this year is Culture, Community, and Lifestyle a celebration of the quotidian occurrences of our day-to-day made eternal by the work of artists. All events listed are free of charge
Produced by the Adius Art Initiative, ATP is a celebration of local artists and the communities they live in.
