As 2015 kicks off, let's take a look back at the Boston area cultural scene over the past year. The art world in Boston went through quite a few institutional changes last year, bringing in government funding and public art programs.
Boston managed to balance the classic and the contemporary quite well. Expectations were filled by bringing in exhibits like Goya, revitalizing performances of "Swan Lake" and continuing the legacy of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, but new curators and (younger, in the case of the BSO) leaders were brought to the top cultural institutions. The city even started running toward the digital age, whether it knew it or not.
