You’re encouraged to vote for the 2008 Boston Art Awards, a contest organized by The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research “to honor the best art made in New England (excepting Connecticut) and exhibits organized here in 2008.”
There are numerous categories in which to vote, from standards like “Painting” and “Photography” to more specialized categories like “Local curator of locally-made art” and “The decline and fall of civilization.”
The deadline for votes is 6 PM on Friday, January 23, 2009. And check out the 2008 Boston Art Awards Ball from 6 to 8 PM, Monday, February 2, at the Beehive at the Boston Center for the Arts, 541 Tremont St., Boston. The free event is co-presented with Big RED & Shiny, who encourage one and all to “join us for cocktails, toasts to great art, and some awkward speeches! Support art from New England, and don’t forget to wear your best creative attire.”
