3 Socially Distant Ways To Enjoy The A&E District

The arts community has been greatly affected this past year but remains resilient with increased programming to keep patrons inspired, intrigued, and immersed in local arts; all while enacting proper safety procedures. We know the arts are integral to society’s well-being, so here are some fun art-filled options to experience this month:  

Solve An Art Heist At The Kravis Center 
Can you crack the world’s most famous unsolved mystery? Give it a try with the Art Heist experience, a socially distanced true crime show where groups move through five walkable locations to gather clues around the Kravis Center running from Thursday, April 29 – Sunday, May 16. Art Heist is based on the biggest art heist in history that took place on March 18, 1990, when two thieves disguised as police officers entered Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in the middle of the night. Tickets start at $41.50. For more information, visit kravis.org.  

Take A Breath Of Fresh Air At The Four Arts Gardens 
Bask in the sun and stroll the Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden and Four Arts Botanical Gardens which have provided a world-class garden experience to visitors since 1938! You will be surrounded by sculptures by artists from all over the world. Complimentary walking tour guide pamphlets are available at the garden entrances. Visitors are asked to follow CDC guidelines while in the gardens or on The Four Arts campus. For more information, visit fourarts.org. 

Get Cultured With  Virtual Programming From The Norton Museum Of Art 
Partake in talks, lectures, and discussions about art in the museum’s collection and beyond. Whether it’s conversations with the curators or deep-dive explorations into the exhibitions on display you can feel immersed into all that the museum has to offer while in the comfort of your home.
