SOMERVILLE, Mass. - Nov. 7, 2017 - PRLog -- The Arts Fuse (http://artsfuse.org/), Boston's premiere independent online magazine for the criticism and coverage of arts and culture, announces its annual Arts Fuse Awards for Outstanding Contributions to the Arts in New England. This is the ceremony's second year, which was created to honor 'unsung heroes in the arts.'

The event will also huzzah a milestone: the 10th year of The Arts Fuse.

The Arts Fuse Awards recognize artists, spaces, and institutions that do the indispensable work of producing and sustaining creative excellence. Senior critics at the Arts Fuse supplied the nominations. Editor-in-chief Bill Marx made the final judgments.
