Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and the Somerville Arts Council Present ArtBeat Festival July 10-18
Join us from July 10-18 for a citywide ArtBeat
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.
