You're Invited! This Thursday, May 21... May 19, 2020
Dear Friends and Art Lovers,
We miss you. We really do! And we are yearning for the time when we can all experience art together again.
We're on the brink of a new era for On the Boards, and for arts and culture in general -- and this week we are having a HUGE online party, and generating much-needed income for that new era through our biggest fundraiser of the year, VIRTUALLY SPECTACULAR: SENSORY PERCEPTION.
What may this new era look like? We're still figuring that out, but we're including and centering artists in the conversations and plans, and we remain fully committed to paying artists, presenting new work, and connecting artists and their ideas to audience members like you. The pandemic we are all living through has presented us with challenges we'd never imagined -- and we know that we have to rise to the occasion creatively, and with flexibility!
Meanwhile, this Thursday we're thrilled to reunite with OtB's hostess with the mostest, Betty Wetter. When we were originally planning this in-person event - we had invited local artists Jordan Macintosh-Hougham | Bad Bad Dance and SassyBlack to perform -- we're now excited to share these with you online, and we added more performances by national artists Justin Vivian Bond and CHRISTEENE, too.
We hope that you will join us, our incredible board of directors and staff, and these artists in support of new performance and art at On the Boards.
Betsey and Rachel
