Greatest Party on Earth Honors Boston Artists and the Planet
Boston’s Artists For Humanity (AFH) will hold its ninth annual Greatest Party on Earth (GPOE) at 7:30 p.m., April 26, at AFH’s EpiCenter, Boston’s first LEED platinum building. The event celebrates the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of Boston’s young artists, while also celebrating the Earth and promoting sustainability.
The annual event raises funds for paid apprenticeships in fine arts and design for Boston’s under-resourced teens and celebrates AFH’s commitment to the sustainability movement. “This is the biggest citywide green celebration and a dazzling evening of amazing art and design, extraordinary non-stop live entertainment and inspired cuisine,” says Henry Goodrow, AFH development director. “GPOE 2013 was a sellout, with more than 650 attendees representing Boston’s diverse and creative communities of philanthropists, business executives, artists, scientists, art school students, entrepreneurs, architects and designers.”
This year’s event is expected to draw even more people, says Goodrow, and offers a focus on green energy. “At every GPOE, AFH’s young artists tackle diverse environmental issues. The Painting Studio and the Lewis Gallery at the EpiCenter are transformed with amazing installations,” he says. This year, teens have chosen to focus the community’s attention on sustainable energy.
Location: 100 W. 2nd St., Boston. For more information, call 617-268-7620 or visit AFHBoston.org.
