Cool things are popping up all over...
Somerville has always been bursting with creativity. As we emerge from our hibernation, we find that new positive energy is popping up everywhere—sometimes when you least expect it. Perhaps even in Davis Square? As a part of this year’s ArtBeat festival, this month’s Inside-Out gallery highlights eleven artists and their creative interpretations inspired by the theme, Pop. From clever poppy, pithy typography/design to pop icons, this showcase explores the many facets of the “pop” theme in this collection of vibrant works. Conveniently located in the CVS window in Davis Square and the home-base of the ArtBeat festival, this collective kaleidoscope of color will be on display through the end of August.
ArtBeat 2021 theme: POP
It’s been a long, rough year, yet things are getting better and we’re all emerging from hibernation. By summer, we expect things to pop—artistic activity, street life, and optimism! We’re looking forward to business bustle, backyard barbecues, and popping in to visit friends and neighbors. And so we’ve chosen “Pop!” for this year’s ArtBeat theme. Let’s celebrate all good things popping up—ideas, cultural trends, celebrations, flowers and new life. It’s time to come together as a community and leap, burst and explode with creativity. At this year’s ArtBeat Festival, expect pop-up performances, pop music (among other genres!), some eye-popping dance, a healthy dose of pop art, and just about anything else that might pop up.
