Fairy Bones performs on Dec. 18, 2021.

In 2020, we headed outdoors to listen to music and look at front yard art installations as the pandemic had us searching for social distancing along with a quest for enrichment. But 2021 was all about trying to get back to normal, with museums and concert venues reopening as Valley residents looked for enjoyment — and perhaps a few distractions.

Amy Young is a local arts and culture writer and art curator. 

The Show spoke with her to learn about last year’s art and music highlights from our region.
