With regret we share that Official Artist Jim Burns is unable to join us this year at Boskone due to an emergency that will keep him from travelling to Boston. However, his art will still be on display in the Art Show.
We are in the process of redesigning the “Official Artist Interview with Jim Burns” to be a discussion among artists and art experts who will come together to talk about Jim’s career and his work.
The special presentation that Jim Burns was to give, “The Art of Jim Burns,” which was scheduled for Saturday at 5:00 pm, has been cancelled.
We are also revising the docent tour he was to give of the Art Show on Sunday at 10:00 am to be led by our special exhibit co-curator Joe Siclari.
Please know that Jim is saddened that he is unable to join us this year as he was very much looking forward to it, and is hoping to join us at Boskone next year, if possible. We support Jim in this decision, and thank you all for your understanding.
We have many wonderful and exciting things planned for Boskone this year, and look forward to seeing you all there to celebrate and enjoy this weekend of science fiction, fantasy, and horror with us.
