More Information

If a typical Worcester resident doesn’t know much about ArtsWorcester, they likely know more about those the group advocates for: the city’s artists.

Each year, ArtsWorcester exhibits the work of 300 artists – both emerging and established – and produces 20 exhibitions. There’s also the gallery tours, professional development workshops and other services keeping Worcester’s arts scene moving ahead. At the center of it all for nearly a decade has been Feibel, a St. Louis native who came to Worcester from the Ann Arbor Art Center in Michigan, where she was the director of education, and Imagining America, a California-based national arts and humanities project. In 2018, she brought ArtsWorcester to its new home in the Printers Building from its longtime home in the Aurora Building on Main Street. Feibel has been active elsewhere, too, including holding board positions at Temple Emanuel Sinai and the Jewish Community Center, and helping out with the Mustard Seed Catholic Worker Community.

What makes Central Mass. unique? Businesses here operate like Worcester is a much smaller town than it is, with personal connections and community obligations first and foremost. Even the biggest companies seem to operate with a mom-and-pop spirit. From that spirit, a greater city grows.

At the same time? I can mirror-write and walk on stilts.
