New Beginnings Exhibit
 A new year is beginning which inspires us to think about our hopes and dreams for the future, the personal and societal changes we want to experience, and the goals we want to achieve.  At the same time, we might be grappling with feelings of fear, sadness, or despair as we experience or witness aging, sickness, hatred, and injustice.  Come see how Arts Wayland member artists creatively interpreted this theme in a one-of-a-kind exhibit at the Natick Morse Library through the end of February.
Arts Wayland Presents: Vox One
Vox One, the internationally acclaimed, jazz vocal quintet from Boston is back on the scene.

They’ll perform selections from their five albums and new material reframed with the unique vocal percussion and electronic effect that brings an eclectic edge to their pure lyricism. Join Vox One at  Arts Wayland Jazz Series (under Artistic Director, Neil Olmstead) at First Parish Church in Wayland.
