Nature and Balance is a temporary public art exhibition featuring 10 truly amazing visual artists that will run from June through October 2008. Held on the grounds of The Arsenal on the Charles complex, Nature and Balance will reflect the evolving nature of the Arsenal and its surrounding region as well as promoting health and fitness.

On June 22, 2008, there will be a kick-off reception featuring live music and other entertainment. The reception will take place at the site of the exhibit - greater Boston’s newest and most exciting center for the performing, literary and visual arts, the Arsenal Center for the Arts.

Following the opening, there will be three more events featuring live music. Each event will feature a Sonicbids artist (4 total reserved slots available). Each selected artist will be compensated $500 for their performance. Sets will vary in length but will likely be in the vicinity of 45 minutes to 1.5 hours per act.

Please note this is a family event - no explicit lyrics are allowed.

About the Arsenal Center for the Arts:

Originally Building 321 of the Watertown Army Arsenal, the Arsenal Center for the Arts is an outstanding story of opportunity, history, perseverance, and transformation. It is also a story of improbable success.

With support from an extraordinary host community, a grassroots group – dedicated citizens with diverse interested and voices came together in 1998 and undertook the myriad tasks to develop the concept for the arts center, build an organization, raise funds, create a design, and grow support, all at the same time.

The group attracted friends all along the way, and gained the support of individuals, businesses, and foundations that recognized the extraordinary possibilities and contributed resources.

The result is a facility inviting regional participation, a space housing dynamic venues that support a lively beehive of activity uniquely designed for interdisciplinary cooperation and collaboration, where the visual, literary, and performing arts interact, enhance each other, and offer education opportunities for people of every age and skill level.
