The Eighth Annual Artists Under the Dome Event 2014


WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2014 from 10am to 2pm

Massachusetts State House's Great Hall

Thank you to everyone who helped make it a wonder event!

For the eighth time, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts invited Massachusetts artists working in all disciplines (visual arts, literary, performing, crafts, new media, etc.) to the State House on Wednesday, November 12th, from 10am to 2pm in the State House's Great Hall to thank them for all they contribute to our state's economy and quality of life. As part of the 8th Annual event, there was a special thank you tribute for Treasurer Grossman. The entire event was free and open to the public.

Massachusetts is the only state in the country to have such an event! Down load the pdf flier!

The 2014 event was brought to you by the Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts and Cultural Development, The Massachusetts State Treasury, the Massachusetts Artists Leaders Coalition, the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Businesses, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the State House's Cultural Caucus.

Also the Artists Under the Dome After Party was from 7pm to 11pm at GEM Lounge on 42 Province Street in Downtown Boston (21+). The After Party was free and open to the public and was a collaboration between MALC and the Future Boston Alliance. More info:
