Jamaica Plain Arts Council Will Project Artists’ Images Bigger Than Life Sept. 12

On the evening of Sunday, September 12, from 7 – 9 p.m., the Jamaica Plain Arts Council will project artists’ images bigger than life in front of JP’s First Unitarian Universalist Church at 6 Eliot Street! You will be able to view art in a relaxed, exciting atmosphere.

After a year of an abundance of caution and staying home, imagine a coming together to celebrate art, to share live music and dancing on the lawn. We have all been eager to be together, to share what we love and enjoy our urban village, Projections does that. Join us to celebrate Jamaica Plain’s vibrant art scene.**

Rain Date: Saturday, September 18.

While being optimistically hopeful to come together, we are simultaneously cautious and planning a virtual option should public health and safety measures not permit being together in person.

Jurors chose works to receive and be indicated as Juror’s Choice and Best in Show Awards. Works were reviewed for quality, originality, and innovation. Artists were notified of jurors’ choices before the event.
