Singing, dancing, painting; musicians, artists, actors; filmmakers, designers, photographers. In Westwood, our residents have shown an immense appreciation for the arts and the artists that use their talents to bring thoughtful, fun, interesting programs to our parks, stages and streets. In 2020 Celebrate Westwood had a unique opportunity to bring entertainment downtown to help create a spirited atmosphere for residents looking for more than a stroll. The successful launch of Arts on the Avenue (rebranded as Music on the Avenues and Arts in the Park in 2023) has led to an expansion of the program with the goal of bringing more varied art experiences - painting, sculpture, photography, music and more - to our town.
As we ramp up our search for artists and musicians, we urge anyone interested in adding their talent to the mix to fill out an application here. We are thrilled the Westwood Historic Bandstand has been able to serve as an auxiliary summer stage and are thankful to the Westwood Recreation Department for allowing the opportunity to bring live theatre and small musical performances to Westwood.
