[somartscouncil] DO NOT MISS THIS - Somerville performers featured in LAUGHTER LEAGUE LIVE November 1 in Boston [1 Attachment] - [somartscouncil]

  [Attachment(s) from included below] Laughter REALLY is medicine and we prove it every day. The Laughter League will debut LAUGHTER LEAGUE LIVE, a one-of-kind benefit evening of comedy celebrating the work of the Laughter League Healthcare Clown team at Boston Children’s Hospital. The benefit will be held Thursday, November 1, 2018, in the Virginia Wimberly Theatre, Calderwood Pavilion at Boston Center for the Arts, 527 Tremont Street, South End. Performance is at 7:30 PM. Tickets for performance: $50 adults, $30 children 12 and under. Special VIP Cocktails and Clowns pre-show at 6:30 pm. Get up close and personal with the Laughter League performers ($100).  Tickets will go on sale in September. For tickets visit or call 617-933-8600 or in person at the Boston Theatre Scene box office. For general information visit 
 The Laughter League Clown Program Team features Brian Dwyer (Dr. Gon Golphin), Jay Stewart (Doc Skeeter), Jeffrey Smithson (Dr. Bafu), Meryl Galaid (Dr. Dazzle), Mal Malme (Dr. Mal Adjusted), Joe Howard (Dr. Joekelele), Robb Preskins (Dr. Gonzo), Leah Abel (Dr. Bucket Buster), Jenny Oberhauser (Dr. BeBopper), BB Widdop (Nurse BB), and Laughter League founders, Dick Monday (Dr. Monday) and Tiffany Riley (Dr. Slappy). Every day for the past 22 years, through the work of the Laughter League, teams of professionally trained performers transform pain and worry into moments of light and laughter. Locally, these hospital performers “write prescriptions” for laughter to support healing in pediatric care settings at Boston Children’s Hospital. 
 “Laughter League performers work closely with Child Life Departments and Medical staff to identify patients in need of a laugh,” says Laughter League president Tiffany Riley. “Performers are integral parts of the circle of care in many hospitals, providing distraction during procedures, encouraging kids to walk, eat, take medicine, or simply empower them for a few moments during their hospitalization. Our programs instill moments of joy when illness and disease take a back seat to simply being a kid.” 
Laughter League is a 501(c)3 organization committed to improving the lives of the children and families they serve through the transformational power of laughter. Laughter League currently provides laughter care at Boston Children's Hospital, Hasbro Children's Hospital in Rhode Island and Cook Children's Medical Center in Texas. There are professional medical clown programs in more than twenty-five countries, including Israel, France, Holland, Brazil, Canada, Australia and beyond. 
 Special thanks to the League of the Boston Children's Hospital. __._,_.___ Attachment(s) from | View attachments on the web 1 of 1 Photo(s) Boston_group_invitefront.jpg Posted by: Reply via web post • Reply to sender • Reply to group • Start a New Topic • Messages in this topic (1) Check out the automatic photo album with 1 photo(s) from this topic.

[somartscouncil] request your help and support for our ArtFarm capital project. - [somartscouncil]

  Hello.  I’m writing to request your help and support for our ArtFarm capital project.   As many of you know, or have participated in community meetings (thank you again), ArtFarm is a capital project for the City of Somerville to convert the former 2.1 acre waste transfer site into a “creative commons”    We conducted over 7 public meetings and have determined to focus on area that would transform the site and serve the broader community.  The site’s utility will provide: ·        2.1 acres of open space/passive recreation that will include; ·        5,500 sq. ft. ArtBarn to provide indoor space for performances, meetings, gallery space, a future/potential café space; ·        Community gardens for the general public ·        Large outdoor civic space for events and passive recreation ·        Urban agricultural initiatives with our current partners of Groundwork, Green City Growers, and the City’s own Shape up Somerville.  (these partnerships and activities are currently operational.) Just recently we submitted a grant proposal for the third time (we withdrew the application the previous submittals due to construction timelines, etc.) to the Community Preservation Committee to support ArtFarm as we move forward in finalizing design development, construction documents in hopes of starting constructio

Creature Comforts Artist Talk - THIS Thursday! - [somartscouncil]

Thursday, October 25, 6:30pm ‌ ‌ ‌ Artist Talk with Christine Kyle, Gail Samuelson, Gin Stone & Daniel Zeese Thursday, October 25th, 6:30-8pm at Cambridge Art Association | 25R Lowell Street, Cambridge MA Creature Comforts invites the viewer to enter Another Environment: a landscape of contrasts, with creatures and beings spotlighted in their native realm. Some are adapted to wetlands, other an environment unrecognizable to humans. In this hall, visitors will explore a hauntingly beautiful, otherworldly depiction of an ethereal, foreign place, and encounter its remarkable residents face-to-face. Free & Open to the Public Click here to RSVP for the Creature Comforts artist talk About the Artists: About Christine Kyle | As a child, Christine Kyle was often absorbed in creative reveries. Fortunately, the Waldorf high school she attended encouraged and nurtured her artistic talents. As a sociology major in college, Kyle continued to be drawn to art, taking enough art classes to enable her to add art as a second major. After teaching art and life studies at an alternative high school for five years, Kyle enrolled in a graphic design program, and worked in the field for fifteen years. All the while, she maintained a dedicated studio practice, steadily creating work, and experimenting with a wide array of media. In 2006, Kyle earned an MFA from Lesley University College of Art and Design and has since focused solely on her artistic pursuits. Her work has been exhibited widely at venues throughout Massachusetts, including the Lunder Arts Center and the Cambridge Art Association, both in Cambridge; the Kobalt Gallery and Rice Polak Gallery, both in Provincetown; the Holzwasser Gallery at the New Art Center in Newton; and the Cultural Arts Alliance in Hopkinton. About Gail Samuelson | Samuelson photographs places where she lives and walks every day: along the trails of Rocky Narrows, a Trustees of Reservations property near her house in Sherborn, MA, and along Tonset Beach in Orleans, MA. She works mostly with film cameras, including a large format camera used to make the images for Creature Comforts now on display at the Kathryn Schultz gallery. In addition to the Cambridge Art Association galleries, Gail has shown her work at the Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson, NY, the Danforth Museum in Framingham, 555 Gallery in South Boston, and the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA. Previously, Gail ran her own portrait and event photography business. About Gin Stone | I am an ardent environmentalist and lover of living creatures. I previously worked solely with paint and panel, and this experience has given me my base knowledge of color and form in space. My last 5 years of work has been combining these things in a new way, humane taxidermy. I use hand dyed reclaimed longline fishing gear as a medium. The material itself is part of my work’s innate narrative. The local fishing culture is deeply ingrained in the environment I live in, my studio is on Cape Cod. More recently the science community has come into the arena to help recover retain the health of oceans. There is frequently a clashing between these two groups. By bringing the recovery and recycling of the fishing gear to the artistic arena, I can help put a spotlight on collaboration and creativity, and perhaps a hopeful outlook on the future from everyone involved. About Daniel Zeese | Daniel Zeese is an artist, designer and educator practicing in Somerville and Boston Massachusetts. His latest work explores populations, belonging, and identity within an urban environment. Inspired by a history of textiles and the domestic objects that we bring into our home to create refuge, Daniel reveals a way to let our minds return to nature while our bodies inhabit the city. His work investigates what it means to be within civilization while on the edge of the wilderness. Outnumbered, on the fringe of what is accepted in the city, celebrated from a distance, and threatened to exile by the powers of the majority. Daniel reacts to the continuing history of violence within cities against people who, while defining the cultural identity of a place, are often misunderstood, attacked and objectified. Later we experience the outcome, the resulting martyrdom, through the master cultural narrative. This body of work explores, in many mediums, whom it is we choose to mourn and celebrate.

[somartscouncil] Local Artist Town Hall [1 Attachment] - [somartscouncil]

  [Attachment(s) from Gregory Jenkins included below] Posting for:  Interested in creative spacemaking, civic art, community engagement, and/or radical economic development? The Local Artist Town Hall is a citizen-organized meeting to connect artists and creative types for arts advocacy in Somerville, collaboration on public arts projects, and inquiry around the question: If you had the space and resources, how would you transform existing structures and policies for creative development in Somerville? Everyone is welcome, and we hope to cultivate a safe and supportive environment for ideas to be shared and voices to be heard. We are a completely unaffiliated amorphous group of folks looking for collaborators and organizers who believe in the power of place, and the arts as a vehicle of socio-political transformation.
