Take us back to ARTOPIA!

ARTOPIA the night
Thank you from AFH to those who attended ARTOPIA

Thank you for joining us at ARTOPIA - AFH's immersive art experience!

On April 13, nearly 700 attendees entered into our world of innovation and creativity, puppeteered a 16 ft robot cat, collaborated on artwork, posed in our monochromatic rooms, AND viewed our largest exhibit of teen art.

Most importantly, our teens' voices were heard (an inspiring video montage of the speaking program below—not to be missed!), hundreds of pieces from 185 teen artists and designers were showcased, and many happy buyers left ARTOPIA with art in hand! If any pieces caught your eye, please contact us for another look.

If you missed our interactive donation station, please consider making a contribution here to help us reach our fundraising goal. Every donation supports the empowerment and employment of Boston teens in the creative industries and beyond.

We uploaded ARTOPIA photos taken at our pink and green monochromatic photo booths just for you—so find yourself, your friends, download and share. We hope to see you at the EpiCenter for an upcoming Open Studio or AFH event soon!
