Boston Arts (ahts) Festival
August 25, 2014
Now in its’ eleventh year the Boston (ähts) festival will be showcasing local artists, diverse performances, educational interactive art activities and cutting edge temporary public art. Christopher Columbus Park, on Boston’s waterfront in the North End, will once again be the location for this annual festival.
Highlights for this year’s events will include the PBS radio storytelling program, the Moth, the Animal Hospital Ensemble featuring upwards of 20 musicians surrounding the audience with experimental music and poet and local author Nick Flynn, reciting his poetry, and a fireworks spectacular on Saturday night.
The Highlights for temporary public art include a miniature contemporary art museum showing the work of 40 local artists and the “ear1 project” which challenges viewers to explore ways to perceive the environment in alternative ways through music and technology. As always our village of juried artists will be selling an eclectic selection of handmade jewelry, crafts and art. Bring a friend or bring the whole family!
