MassArt Common Good Awards

Recommended Posts

Wilco is one of six awardees at MassArt's Common Good Awards which "will celebrate the integration of arts and culture in civic life, honoring those who push boundaries in advocacy, teaching, placemaking, and creation, emphasizing the arts' public influence on problem-solving and quality of life."


From the nomination:  "American rock band Wilco will be honored for Solid Sound, the festival they founded in 2010 in partnership with the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA) in North Adams. MassArt will honor them for their incredible work with Mass MoCA, for their commitment to the Berkshires, and their adventurous curatorial vision. They set out to create the kind of festival they, as music fans, would like to attend, and in the process, cultivated a longstanding civic institution that brings thousands of people, economic activity, an unmistakable sense of community, and international visibility to one of the most beautiful corners of the Commonwealth." 


There's an event on December 16 and the word is that Wilco will have some representation there (but no musical performance).
