Ringo in the Computer Age

Tues. June 29 Ringo. He's been the (lucky) drummer. (Pete Best was the unlucky one.) He's been an imbiber of many illegal substances and a survivor of the same. He's fronted the All-Starr band for many a summer, giving new life to old rockers and allowing a certain legitimacy to the …

Love/Sex is in the Air, On the Walls …

 Fridays and Saturdays in February  How the dismal month of February got chosen as the month we'd have Valentine's Day I do not know. I do know the creators of greeting cards created the holiday, in one of the canniest marketing moves ever. Maybe, that's why it's Feb. 14: This month …

Oceanography & Art at the Museum of Science

ongoing – June 2   There is still, perhaps, the idea that art and science live on two different ends of the world. One is a creative pursuit and the other driven by research and analysis. Left brain, right brain. Rarely the twain would, or should, meet.     Whitney Bernstein a …

More art in the great outdoors

Sept. 29-Oct. 15 Ever since we were turned on to the tranquil beauty of the art sculptures at the Forest Hills Cemetary we’ve been on the look for other types of projects where you needn’t experience your art in a gallery. We found one at Allandale Farm in Brookline, where …

Hanging Gardens at the Gardner

ongoing  Is it possible to envy a dead person? When we think of Isabella Stewart Gardner we, of course, think of the Museum and how she put an imprint on it that will last … as long as we do. This is called a legacy. What she created has lasted, …

Art Away from Newbury Street in the South End

ongoing – Sun. June 22  Do ya like bunnies? Who' doesn't! Do you like "a sad menagerie of booze-addled, overburdened, melancholy flora and fauna on a solemn and cheerful death march into obscurity?" You bet! The latter is Joe Keinberger's description of his work at Space 242's New Loft Gallery. (It's his …

Many a Madonna; none of them Ms. Ciccone

Fri. July 20  Last call for the mother of Christ! Does Somerville have more Madonnas than any other city its size? It might. Keep in mind, Somerville is the densest packed city in New England (it’s four square miles) and it’s not without a few Catholics. Some Catholics love displaying …
