Mosesian Center for the Arts

One of the many reasons that we love Watertown is that, in addition to its amazing restaurants, bars, and shops, there are a ton of options available for enrichment and learning. From the many nearby museums to all that the Watertown Free Public Library has to offer, the opportunities to explore and expand your mind are plentiful. The Dorothy and Charles Mosesian Center for the Arts is no exception, which is why we’re excited to spotlight them on the blog this month! 

Throughout the year, the center presents live theatre productions, concerts, comedians, literary speakers, selections from the Watertown Children’s Theatre and more. The offerings are eclectic and offer a great alternative to having to truck all the way into Boston to see a live show. This season, for example, the Watertown Children’s Theatre will present Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; the Boston Theatre Dance Company will be making an appearance; and the Daniela Schachter Quartet will perform as well. Check out Mosesian online for full schedule info. 

The Center also hosts an art gallery  that’s open Monday-Friday 12-5pm, as well as during evening theater performances and special events. Through October 31st, stop by the intersection of Arsenal Street and School Street on the Arsenal on the Charles Campus to see “Grow Gallery”, an outdoor exhibit of paintings by Diego Velez and Jana Charl. 

Education plays an important role in the Center, with a variety of educational programs offered to children, teens, and adults. Programming includes everything from acting and drawing to painting and movement and more. There is truly something for everyone – what a great way to try something new or sharpen an already learned skill!
