Coming at the beginning of June, the 9th to be exact the best of New England Show will be held at the 808 gallery in Brookline on Commonwealth Avenue. This is a biennial competition and celebration of New England design, so works from 2009 up until 2011 will be included in the show. Sadly it is past the date for submissions to be included in the show/competition but that doesn’t mean you can’t attend and enjoy what is being offered.
Schedule for the night is as follows so it certainly is more than just artwork, there will be food and music as well.
6:00 – 7:30 pm – Winners gallery. Silent auction. DJ. Food. Refreshments. Mingling.
7:30 – 8:30 pm – Awards ceremony
8:30 – 9:30 pm – More DJ. More food. More refreshments. More mingling.
Ticket prices are as follow:
Student AIGA members – $5 advance / $10 at the door (BU students: free)
AIGA members – $25 advance / $30 at the door Join now
Non-members – $35 advance / $40 at the door
Ends up being expensive for non-members but from all that I have seen it will be worth it and honestly about what you would probably spend on a night out anyways.

Hope to see some of you there and expect a report after the show as well!
