South Shore Arts is excited to present a new season of Art in Focus with a new format. Art in Focus is for adult learners of all ages who are interested in the arts and their impact on the world. Each session will take place virtually, with live interaction between the presenter and audience hosted by South Shore Arts Deputy Director, Micah Bornstein.
Thursday evening sessions at 7:00 PM will be live events with the opportunity to engage directly with the presenting artist. Monday morning sessions at 10:00 AM will be rebroadcasts with post-presentation conversation hosted by Micah. Links to participate are posted on the website.
This season will cover a wide variety of current topics including mental health and the spirituality of music, the role of the arts in community during difficult times, the connection between art and nature, and other conversations with a variety of artists working in different mediums.
The new virtual format allows South Shore Arts to bring artists from a wide geographic range directly to the audience in the comfort of their own homes, bringing access to artistic experiences that might otherwise be out of reach. Presentations and discussions promise to be thought-provoking and relevant to current world events.
Founded in 1996 by Rita M. Ray, South Shore Arts continues this series annually with a variety of topics and guest speakers. An important aspect of the program is the thoughtful dialogue between the program facilitator, the guest speakers and the attendees to broaden views of the arts and individuals in our world. Art in Focus is open to the public and, thanks to generous support from Community Healthcare System, it is always free.
