Big Red & Shiny is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization that relies on donations to operate. We strive to support Boston's diverse art communities, institutions, and writers through coverage and criticism, and believe that any creative endeavor, no matter how big or small, should be seen and discussed by our audience. To that end, we are committed to providing free access to all of the writing that we publish online without paywalls. Your ticket purchase will help to ensure that we are able to continue our mission by funding BR&S for another year.

**Those who purchase tickets in advance will have their names noted at the door for entry.
