ArtROX! Beacon Hill 98 West Cedar Street, Beacon Hill
Q: How do you express a creative dialog across communities? A: Ask an artist.
For seven weeks in Autumn 2013, artists from Roxbury will take up one or two week creative residencies at a pop up studio/gallery space at 98 West Cedar Street on Beacon Hill. Pass by to see them at work, then stop in during the opening for each. A schedule of presenting artists is available here.
Help Discover Roxbury with a strong finish to 2013
On October 17, 2013, our Executive Director issued a challenge to the community. He asked everyone connected to Discover Roxbury to dig a little deeper and make a donation toward the goal of raising $10,000 before the end of the year. The funds will be used to support and operate ArtROX! Dudley Square, an arts and cultural venue that is key in catalyzing the revitalization of Dudley Square.
Discover Roxbury is partnering with Grub Street offering a writing workshop for new and practicing writers. This class has a very clear mission: devote two hours to trying your hand at creating writing. Through a series of fun directed writing exercises, we will explore the terrain of fiction and nonfiction: mining for material, constructing characters and settings, shaping vivid dialogue, understanding point of view, and finding your voice. For workshop and registration information, click here.
Celebrate and support Roxbury's artists!
As the name suggests, the attire, decor, and food (to the extent possible) at the party are all black and white, with black and white artwork also for sale. Our goal is to void the venue of color to remind us of how important Roxbury's artists are in bringing color to our lives.
All net proceeds support Discover Roxbury'sArtROX! programming.
Immerse yourself in Roxbury's artistic excellence and cultural richness. Meet local artists during our ArtROX! series, watch live theater and musical performances, and enjoy food from around the world.
Our programs connect people across cultures and communities. We introduce the public to Roxbury's historians, gardeners, and business owners, and encourage participation in the neighborhood's civic life.
