UPDATE: Due to the Covid-19 emergency, ArtWeek has been canceled statewide.  Arlington artists and organizations that had committed to hosting an event or becoming an Artweek Community Partner are encouraged to let us know if you will still offer an activity that employs safe social distancing principles such as a virtual performance, video demo or telemeeting. We hope to work with you for ArtWeek 2021!
The Arlington Commission for Arts & Culture is partnering with ArtWeek to spread the word about this award-winning statewide festival dedicated to making the arts affordable and accessible to everyone.
This year, between Friday, May 1 – Sunday, May 10, individual artists, cultural organizations, and businesses alike are invited to open their doors to share hands-on, interactive or behind-the-scenes creative experiences to neighbors of all walks. Now in its 7th year,  ArtWeek is also engaging those outside the arts sector — such as restaurants and lodging businesses — who want to partner with artists to offer creative experiences, from Hotel-and-a-Show packages to Art-Inspired Menus.
It is free, easy, and inspiring to be part of this innovative festival, and participating events are promoted to audiences all across Arlington, Greater Boston and the Commonwealth. The final deadline for applying to host an event is February 21, so don’t delay, apply today at, and let us know you’re registered by sending us an email — we’ll add you to our ArtWeek promotions around town!

Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek has offered 1,000+ unique experiences to adults and children of all ages and backgrounds since 2013. This year, ArtWeek is being supported by hundreds of Community Partners including ACAC and the Arlington Cultural District, Media Sponsors, and Lead Champions: Massachusetts Cultural Council, Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
