misc_none 1:30 PM  -  3:00 PM Wayland Reads - Art Talk with Judy Schurgin   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rachel Sideman-Kurtz     rsideman@minlib.net
   

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was the vision of the fabled Mrs. Jack.  This fabulous museum contains one of the most unusual collections of art in the United States and includes treasures from antiquity to the early twentieth century.  Opened in 1903, the building is fashioned after a fifteenth century Venetian palace, with galleries surrounding a courtyard filled with gorgeous plants, flowers and antique sculpture.  Join us for the slide/lecture presentation which will focus on the life of this aristocratic, independent and flamboyant woman, as well as her fabulous art collection and the jewel of a museum, which she created.

Judy Schurgin has been a museum teacher at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for twenty-six years, and has been a tour guide at the Institute of Contemporary Art for the past six years. In addition, Judy has designed and taught art history courses ranging from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century at adult education centers throughout the Greater Boston area.  Judy is an inveterate traveler, and has visited many of the great art museums through the U.S. and Europe. Judy lived in Wayland for many years and presently lives in Boston.

misc_none Tour of SOWA with Nasser K.   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rachel Sideman-Kurtz     rsideman@minlib.net
   

SoWa is the leading art center of Boston, a community of artist studios, galleries, shops, restaurants, entrepreneurs, businesses and residences that believe in crafting quality, one-of-a-kind products and experiences.  Once known as a rundown warehouse district, the SoWa Art & Design district has experienced a renaissance, blossoming into a world-renowned retail and artist community in Boston's South End. Because it is where the character in The Art Forger lives and works, we thought we would explore the neighborhood otherwise known as "South of Washington" during its annual art walk when we can visit artists in their studios.       

Wayland resident and acclaimed photographer, Nasser K, will serve as our tour guide.  

Participants will meet at 1 Paul Sullivan Way between 10:45 - 11 a.m.  Tour will begin promptly at 11 a.m.  Bring a water bottle and wear walking shoes.  Tour will occur rain or shine and will last a few hours with breaks. 1 Paul Sulliban Way is the back door of the Artist's Building.  You may wait in the lobby if there is inclement weather.  Look for Nasser who will be wearing an Arts Wayland shirt.
