Boston, Massachusetts Winner Overcome with Emotion

The walls of Boston’s City Hall were graced with the artworks of city employees and their family members from October 7th through November 29th for the 3rd Annual National Arts Program Exhibition. John Crowley who is the longtime Curator and Exhibitions Coordinator for Boston's City Hall Galleries, coordinates the NAP exhibit. This show helps foster a passion for the arts in their employee community and we are thrilled that Mr. Crowley has taken it upon himself to coordinate this exhibit which uplifts and honors so many of the hard-working City of Boston employees and their families.

John told us that, “the best of show award was very emotional this year. Jaqueline Perry who is a street worker for the DPW was brought to tears when she found out she had won. She is very humble about her work and a lot of time the best artists are the most humble.” We feel that artists that enter this show stand to gain so much from participating. The employees that create art and participate in creative activities such as this show, have lower levels of stress, are more productive and have better morale. This show is an opportunity to share your creativity with your broader community and we are so pleased that John sees the merits in our program and continues to make it a success in the City of Boston!

The Best of Show Award went to Jaqueline Perry and artist in the amateur category for her craft piece entitled “Game of Thrones” (pictured above).
