Event Spotlight: Photo Nights Boston—at the Boston Center for the Arts Cyclorama
Photo Nights Boston, a non-profit organization founded in 2010, promotes photography as a chance to “Project Yourself.” The group supports local photographers and artists throughout the year, culminating in a public photo festival catered by BG Events and Catering.
The Cyclorama is a classically beautiful Boston event venue featuring a wide open space that can be dressed to fit any kind of event theme and fit a very large number of guests. Since the benefit was for Photo Nights Boston, we turned the Cyclorama event space into a sleek, industrial city atmosphere using the different regions of Boston as our inspiration.
The photos themselves were captured all over the city of Boston, so we decided our menu should reflect the same love for our city. We featured cuisine made famous by geographic location, with examples including North End Italian, Chinatown and Fenway Park.
Guests were able to experience Boston’s unique culinary scene through an array of appetizers, hors d’oeuvres and other casual foods.
We displayed the food on towering steel shelving throughout the Cyclorama, giving guests ample space to congregate and dine while also supporting our industrial city theme.
The lighting crew designed wonderful effects on each food display, creatively mimicking a Boston city night inside our venue.
Our signature dr!nk service provided plenty of delicious beverage options and prompt service from bars strategically located throughout the venue.
Across the Boston venue, we scattered groups of sleek, white lounge furniture to give guests a place to sit and eat while enjoying the photos and mingling with other photography supporters. Overall, the festival was a huge success, and we can’t wait to work with Boston’s Cyclorama and Photo Nights Boston again!
