Be Inspired on Monday Evening!

Thomas Edison famously described genius as 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. MOBA artists may have a different balance. This Curator Talk includes works from our 2024 wall calendar.
Join us on Monday evening in the MOBA gallery, 1250 Massachusetts Ave, Boston, (inside Dorchester Brewing Co.). 
The program is free. You can purchase beer and BBQ before, during, and after.
