Advance registration is now closed but you can register at the door! We ask that everyone be fully vaccinated* to attend this event.

Join us for the opening reception of Now What?! Advocacy, Activism & Alliances in American Architecture Since 1968 on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 6:00 PM. This event celebrates opening of the Now What?! exhibition along with the reopening of BSA Space as the first major, in-person event in over two years! The reception is free and open to the public and will be attended by several of the exhibition curators and many in the BSA community.

Now What?! is a traveling exhibition highlighting the role architects and designers have played in advancing equity and civil rights within and beyond the architecture profession. In welcoming this exhibition to Boston, the BSA is partnering with ArchiteXX, an organization which promotes gender equity in architecture.

After traveling to 11 cities in three countries since 2018, Boston will be the final stop for the exhibition, which has been especially designed and expanded to include local history and voices. This exhibition seeks to celebrate those in our community who have used architecture and design as a means to address racism and injustice in our city.

We hope you can join us to explore the exhibition while enjoying complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. There is no dress code but wearing bright, bold colors is encouraged!
