In the spirit of Renew ’71, the South Shore Chamber of Commerce and Special Service Area 42 (SSA #42) in partnership with Eric Williams owner of the famed Silver Room in Hyde Park and Rob McKay of Connect Gallery proudly present CONNECT South Shore Arts FestivalCONNECT South Shore will feature a tapestry of local and nationally regarded retailers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers, illustrating the richness of cultural expression, while generating small business revenue. Likewise, this enterprising marketplace is intended to stimulate visionary thinking and striking development opportunities for a community disproportionately impacted by patterns of disinvestment. This activation will engage and celebrate the South Shore community by showcasing South Shore’s artists and entrepreneurs. We hope to bring community members and folks from surrounding communities to South Shore to enjoy the Renew ’71 project currently underway
