It is a color that asks—demands—that you pay attention. We are living in a moment of high alert, and danger in this country. For me red signifies this emergency – the degradation of our democracy, of institutions, of empathy.  Many of the art works I saw while jurying this exhibition expressed anger, trauma, and a heightened sense of emotion. The heat of red burned. And yet for many, perhaps most of the works I looked at, red was a character amongst many others, or simply a sharp detail, used to articulate a complex narrative or composition. Red does that – it points things out, makes it difficult to unsee them." ~ from Dan Byer's juror statement Click here for the full list of participating artists and more Pictured above | Paula DeSimone, Day Shift, Monotype with collage, 37x30 inches ; Erica Licea-Kane, Seeing Red, Acrylic medium, acrylic pigment, 16x13 inches Community Collaboration Exhibit | Viewpoints On view at Cambridge College's Town Common Gallery November 2-30, 2018 Juried by Resa Blatman Reception: Thursday, November 15, 6:30-8pm How do individuals and society respond to change?

[somartscouncil] Audition for Burning! - [somartscouncil]

[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.

  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
