WestonArts is a non-profit organization supporting and developing the arts in Weston. WestonArts raises money to promote communitywide development of the town’s rich arts heritage, and helps support future WestonArts grants for school and community arts programs.
This past year, WestonArts sponsored a dance performance and tribute to Margaret Bisceglie, longtime director of the Young People’s Creative Dance Theater, and beloved to many in the Weston community.
