WHO WE ARE

artBOOM is a pop-up style initiative dedicated to bringing the arts to alternative and vacant spaces.  We strive to build on an era of multidisciplinary programming and site-specific installations, broadening the scope of visibility for young artists.

WHAT WE DO

Presented to the public on a monthly basis, artBOOM curates and maintains a two-day, fully immersive experience.  The events function in a rotation of locations and offer unique opportunities for patrons, fans, and the public to connect with artists, musicians, and creatives.  Each presentation revolves around a theme, encouraging collaborations that will engage in deeper conversations on those topics.  Through artBOOM we hope to make the creative world more welcoming and accessible, and build bridges to visibility and expanded patronage for artists.  By partnering with local businesses, participants also experience the best of their communities and artBOOM expands the reach of their initiative.
