ARTS FOR ALL: Mosesian Center for the Arts Benefit 2019, The Mosesian Center for the Arts invites you to join us May 23rd as we celebrate ARTS FOR ALL: Mosesian Center for the Arts Benefit 2019 - a remarkable evening of compelling stories of transformation, exceptional entertainment, great food, wonderful friends, visual and tactile art for all to experience, and the celebration of some very special people.
The night kicks off with a delightful dinner reception featuring a Burger Bar, Taco Bar, and stations to tantalize the senses. Guests can explore our "Please Touch the Art" Tactile Exhibition on the first and second floor galleries while sipping on the evening's signature beverages. Next, we'll move upstairs to the MainStage Theater for the Awards Presentation, a toe-tapping performance by one of the freshest faces in the dance scene - Ian Berg and Subject: Matter, and a finale performance with love from our own Watertown Children's Theatre's production of Rent. Finally, we'll make our way back to the Black Box Theater for a Make Your Own Sundae Bar Dessert Reception.
