Upcoming Virtual Events with Mason Arts at Home

It’s been five months since Mason’s Center for the Arts (CFA) launched Mason Arts at Home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. CFA has stayed connected to its dedicated community of arts enthusiasts through this programming. Here are some chances to enjoy our events:
