Curators’ Choice – Week of April 15

Posted April 15th, 2020

We sure do miss seeing you all in person and experiencing art together!

While our programming is on pause, our Artistic Producers Zach Blackwood and Katy Dammers have prepared Curators’ Choice, a list of great online performances, video interviews, and interactive content for you to peruse from your couch. We hope you enjoy this sampling of works previously presented at FringeArts, pieces by FringeArts alumni, and some of our favorite places to check out new work online. Each week Zach and Katy will prep a new list to keep your ears and eyes full until we can be together again.
