Eyes on the City: MAS’s Partners in Paris
November 6th, 2015, 2:23 pm
Earlier this year, MAS celebrated the launch of a new international collaboration with our friends in Paris, the Arts Arena, titled “The Arts Arena/Municipal Art Society Paris-New York Series on Cities.” Today we invite you to learn a bit more about this wonderful peer organization. The Arts Arena is a non-profit initiative for the creative and performing arts, and issues of culture and society. Since its founding in 2007, the Arts Arena has presented more than 130 exhibitions, performances, debates, colloquia, lectures, and festivals that are free and open to the public. In the words of Arts Arena Founder and Artistic Director Dr. Margery Arent Safir, “From day one, the Arts Arena has been about more than the arts, per se. We’ve created a forum for culture and society dedicated to breaking down the walls between the arts and the worlds of business, science, cultural diplomacy, technology, and development, and exploring how the arts can be used for the betterment of the world in which we live.” MAS is proud to celebrate the shared set of values that unites our organizations. We invite you to learn a bit more about our wonderful partners in Paris by viewing this new video: Visit the Arts Arena’s website to view even more videos of their recent events, including a visit from MAS Board Member Thomas Woltz earlier this fall. To learn more about MAS’s ongoing work on the relationship between business and the arts, and the value of cultural place-making, join us on November 19 for our next signature event: Global Cities at the Crossroads: Commerce, Art & the Captivating Power of Place.
