Join us at the ICA Watershed for a day of family fun featuring activities in connection with Hew Locke: The Procession. Consider what it means to be in a procession: What do processions celebrate, commemorate, or challenge? What do you bring, wear, or do during one? Who would you invite to join you? Explore the themes of the exhibition through art-making and programs by East Boston community organizations! Reserve free admission tickets online in advance*. All activities are drop-in, first come first served, space is limited.

Stay tuned for more information on activities and partnerships!
