COMMUNITY ART - BE INTERACTIVE AT AOFTA

Prince George Street at the corner of Boundary

An Occasion for the Arts is very excited to announce that we are continuing our collaboration with Steve Prince, Director of Engagement & Distinguished Artist In Residence, Muscarelle Museum of Art.

Steve engages the greater community with an interactive art project at the Festival that highlights how the individual is part of the whole, and how creativity can be a shared experience that can lead to an inclusive community.


NEW for the 2021 Festival is an awareness of how difficult the last 17 months have been and how can AOFTA help the community heal. To that end we have partnered with the McLeod Tyler Wellness Center at William & Mary.

The synergy created can only benefit the Williamsburg community as we highlight how the arts can bring about a positive and engaging experience through discussion and workshops at the Festival centering on the theme of Art for Wellbeing.

The Art for Wellbeing sessions will be limited to 20 people per session under the direction of Sarah Balascio, Art Therapist & Adjunct Lecturer at the College of William & Mary, McLeod Tyler Wellness Center.
