Wayland Reads - Art Talk with Judy Schurgin
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

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.

 

*Please note this event has been rescheduled from April.

Tour of SOWA with Nasser K.

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.

EuphoriaEuphoria by Lily King 

English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field for several years, studying a tribe on the Sepik River in the Territory of New Guinea with little success. Increasingly frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when he encounters the famous and controversial Nell Stone and her wry, mercurial Australian husband Fen. Bankson is enthralled by the magnetic couple whose eager attentions pull him back from the brink of despair. Nell and Fen have their own reasons for befriending Bankson. Emotionally and physically raw from studying the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo tribe, the couple is hungry for a new discovery. But when Bankson leads them to the artistic, female-dominated Tam, he ignites an intellectual and emotional firestorm between the three of them that burns out of anyone's control.  (2014)

Author Max Klau
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us as Dr. Max Klau presents his new book, Race and Social Change: A Quest, A Study, A Call to Action.

Recent events have turned the spotlight on the issue of race in modern America, and the current cultural climate calls out for more research, education, dialogue, and understanding. This work focuses on a provocative social science experiment with the potential to address these needs. Through an analysis grounded in the perspectives of developmental psychology, adaptive leadership and complex systems theory, the inquiry at the heart of this book illuminates dynamics of race and social change in surprising and important ways. 

Dr. Max Klau is a leadership development scholar and practitioner living in Boston. He currently serves as the Chief Program Officer at the New Politics Leadership Academy, a non-profit that is dedicated to recruiting and developing alumni of national service programs to seek political office. Before stepping into this role, he was the Vice President of Leadership Development at City Year, Inc., the national service program headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. Max received his doctorate of education (Ed.D.) from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2005; his studies focused on civic leadership education. An alumnus of four service programs, he has completed two years of service in Israel and led service programs in Israel, Honduras, Ghana, and the Ukraine. He is on the board of the International Leadership Association, and his writing about leadership has appeared in Fast Company, the Huffington Post, the Washington Post, and the Harvard Business Review.

This event is presented and co-sponsored by the Wayland Community for Social Justice.  WCSJ's mission is to promote and practice continuous learning about the diversity of our society, its history and current status, and encourage Wayland residents and stakeholders to use this knowledge to advocate for social justice.

Great Presenters: David A. Lang
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

David A. Lang: “KINETIC SCULPTURE: A VOICE IN OUR TIMES”
Take a tour of how David’s multiple faceted background developed into motion-activated sculpture that is technical, whimsical, serious, engaging, and always narrative—personifying uncertainty, unpredictability, and serendipity.

David A. Lang has been making Art for all of his adult life. He is a painter, writer, sculptor, photographer, and builder of things. He holds a B.S. in Biology from Fairfield University and completed his graduate studies in Medical Illustration at Mass General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in 1967. His work at Harvard as a scientific illustrator was followed by teaching and chairing the Art Department at Middlesex School in Concord for 30 years. He taught flying at Hanscom Field for over 20 years. He has been building Kinetic Sculpture at his studios in Wayland and Natick since retiring from teaching. He and his wife have lived in Wayland since 1969.

The Sympathizer: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen 

With Saigon about to fall to the enemy in the waning days of the Vietnam War, a South Vietnamese general goes about the task of deciding who will be given permission to board the last flights out of the country. At his side is his trusted captain, a man whose loyalty he does not question. As Saigon falls, the general and his colleagues escape to America, where they find freedom, but not status. They settled into new lives as janitors, cooks, and liquor store owners, unaware that one of them is secretly reporting their activities to the enemy back in Vietnam. The captain's loyalties have long belonged to the Communists, and even in a new land, he will do anything to keep his actions a secret. First novel. (2015)

Swamplandia!
By Russell, Karen


Swamplandia!The Bigtree alligator wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, its island home and gator-wrestling theme park, is swiftly being encroached upon by a competitor. To save her family, Ava must journey on her own to a perilous part of the swamp called the Underworld.

Against a backdrop of hauntingly fecund plant life animated by ancient lizards and lawless hungers, Karen Russell has written an utterly singular novel about a family's struggle to stay afloat in a world that is inexorably sinking. An arrestingly beautiful and inventive work from a vibrant new voice in fiction.

Armchair Travel Book Club
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door memorable travel literature threatens to break out. Now he has traveled across the world and all the way Down Under to Australia, a shockingly under-discovered country with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. In a Sunburned Country is his report on what he found there--a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity.
