Don’t have plans for your Sunday after HSHP7 on Saturday? Check out the MassQ Ball! Imagine an art event where instead of looking at objects on walls we look at each otheor; where instead of going to see art, we become it; where people can convene, converge and celebrate what makes us both unique and unified. This is the inspiration behind MassQuerade Ball 2017: Convergence, an inter-generational, cross-cultural exhibition of the arts. Join us in honoring the diverse artistic expressions of Boston’s communities of color in a shared appreciation for arts, culture, and our collective humanity.
