check out the first pre-event for America Remixed

The first pre-event for America Remixed, the MFA event that will unveil the new Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro wing, was a killer event!  Glovebox stopped by to check out the scene and we had so much fun.

MFA Community Relations Director and member of Catalyst, Zakiya Thomas spoke about the details of America Remixed and how this event will be different from other fundraisers at the MFA.  First you can expect that the main event on November 19th will not only be a glimpse into the amazing contemporary art that will be displayed but will also host a rockin' concert by the Brazilian Girls!  This isn't going to be your black tie ball!  Second you can expect some amazing raffle prizes, including airline tickets to just about anywhere you are thinking you might want to slip away to this winter.  BUT most importantly we are looking forward to how Catalyst, a global audience development initiative at the MFA is going to be involving the community.  Catalyst has set up a call for twelve local artists to display their work digitally for the event on two giant walls.  That could be you!

So if you missed this first pre-event ~ no worries!  There is a second event in October... location TBD
