American singer and musician, Nina Simone said it best “(a)n artist's duty, as far as I'm concerned, is to reflect the times.”
Join BAMS Fest for a dynamic live art show that explores how local painters define their own stories and amplify their connections to social justice issues across Greater Boston and beyond. Whether their art is edgy, bold, thought-provoking or causes discomfort, you will experience a night of intersectionality, self-awareness, and community building that will hopefully inspire social change.
During the event, a SILENT AUCTION will be open for audience members to purchase the paintings. Partial proceeds will provide a wage for artists to support themselves, and support future BAMS Fest programming.
