"Nimbus" Lighting

Join us for the official lighting of "Nimbus"

Tuesday, October 17

6:30pm

Franklin Square

Reception co-hosted by Washington Gateway Main Street and Blackstone Franklin Square Neighborhood Association to follow at Anoush'ella.

 

You may have noticed some peculiar activity in Franklin Square over the past few days: caution tape, climbing ropes and tree climbers and a strange mass of white orbs suspended over the fountain. Washington Gateway Main Street is proud to announce that our newest artistic light installation is near completion and ready to light up Franklin Park.

 

"Nimbus" is an artistic light installation created by artists Claudia Ravaschiere and Michael Moss. 26 orbs hover above the fountain and will illuminate the park with various colors each night.

 

From the artists: "Our goal in making art for the public realm is to evoke a sense of discovery as people encounter the unexpected in a familiar space. We hope to rouse curiosity in passersby, increasing their capacity to observe what the park offers: a contemplative area to experience the green and the beauty of the earth in an urban setting."

We would like to thank Claudia and Michael for creating such an innovative and impactful piece of art that will adorn our park. Additionally, we would like to thank the arborists, Eric, Andrew and Sean, who spent the past few days scaling the trees and setting the lines that suspend the lighting.

Sam Allis, longtime foreign reporter for Time and the Boston Globe, Will Read from his Historical Novel, "A Hero of Two Worlds."
Nov
28
6:30pm 6:30pm

Sam Allis, longtime foreign reporter for Time and the Boston Globe, Will Read from his Historical Novel, "A Hero of Two Worlds."

Among the fetching lures offered by Sam Allis's historical novel  A Hero of Two Worlds is a cover blurb by none other than this country's national musical treasure, James Taylor. Taylor complained that "Sam Allis’s first work of historical fiction (my favorite genre) has robbed me of my sleep for a week."

Set in Italy in the mid-19th century when the country was fighting for its nationhood amid overwhelming calls for an overthrow of the old order of monarchies, dukedoms and papal power, Allis's career, personal history (he lived in Switzerland when young) and affinity for Italy foretold the subject and place of the novel. Rome at the time held a thriving community of American expatriates, artists and what we now refer to as freedom fighters. Told from the perspective of a young American sculptor caught up in the turbulence of 1860s Italy, the hero of that world becomes the hero of two worlds years later when he returns to the United States to take up his role in this country's Civil War and helps set the course for the country we live in now.

A forty-year veteran of the Fourth Estate, Allis was the Time bureau chief in Rome and reported as well from Turkey, Greece and the Middle East. Before that, he covered Congress for the magazine's Washington bureau, and for a while was a columnist for the Wall Street Journal. A foreign editor for the Boston Globe, he also was part of the seven-member Globe team that in 2009 produced Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy, edited by the Globe's Washington bureau chief at the time, Peter Canellos. 

Note to readers: Peter Canellos, when editorial-page editor at the Globe, was instrumental in ensuring coverage of the ill-conceived efforts by the City of Boston ten years ago to try and close up to a third of BPL branches. The Globe's reporting about this issue, and the resistance to it by Bostonians, made sure that nothing of the sort happened.

James Beard Award-winning Chef Jody Adams Plans to Demo Making Pasta

James Beard Award-winning Chef Jody Adams Plans to Demo Making Pasta

Star chef Jody Adams, currently the owner of PortoSaloniki and TRADE, will be at the South End library on Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30 PM, and give a demonstration on how to make pasta. There may be a salad, some mezzo platters from Porto, and some charcuterie. Final details are still being worked out. 

Italian food has been fundamental to Adams, who won the James Beard Foundation Award for the Perrier-Jouet Best Chef Award: Northeast in 1997. She traveled through the Mediterranean countries after graduating from Brown University with a degree in Anthropology, and began as a line cook at Seasons restaurant under chef Lydia Shire in 1983. Three years later, she helped open Hamersley’s Bistro as sous chef of Gordon Hamersley's with whom she developed Hamersley's famous roasted chicken recipe. (By the time she left in 1990 she stayed away from eating chicken for two years, she says.)

In 1990, she became executive chef at Michela’s in Cambridge where she combined New England ingredients with Italian culinary traditions. In September of 1994, Adams opened Rialto in Cambridge. In addition to running Rialto, Adams published a cookbook, In the Hands of a Chef: Cooking with Jody Adams of Rialto RestaurantShe co-wrote the book with her husband, Ken Rivard. Copies will be available for sale at the December 5 event.

The star chef has a reputation of supporting local farms and purveyors. In 2008, she launched an internal educational program, Guerilla Grilling,designed to connect her staff to the farmers and artisan producers that supply the restaurant. Adams is actively involved in organizations that support child’s advocacy and hunger relief, including the Greater Boston Food Bank, Share Our Strength and Partners In Health. In October 2010  was presented with the Humanitarian of the Year award by Share Our Strength.

Claudia Gold talks about her Recent Book, "The Silenced Child."
Oct
10
6:30pm 6:30pm

Claudia Gold talks about her Recent Book, "The Silenced Child."

Claudia Gold, who has practiced pediatrics for more than 25 years, wrote The Silenced Child after an accumulation of observations led her to believe that the single act of listening to young patients and their caretakers was in jeopardy. She was alarmed to see how in the prevailing system of mental health care unruly behavior, or a particularly challenging emotional state, was answered by time-pressed professionals who increasingly relied on psychiatric medication, sidelining time and space for listening.

Gold had begun to see behavior as a form of communication, and noticed as well how healing took place when that communication was heard."Behind every 'behavior problem' is a story that gives meaning to that behavior," she was quoted as saying in an interview. "Only when we know that story do we know how to help that child and family."

Subtitled From Labels, Medications and Quick-Fix Solutions to Listening, Growth and Lifelong Resilience, Gold's book refers to an avalanche new research in child development and neuro-biology that shows how the brain grows in relationships where listening and interpersonal give-and-take happens. "My thesis is that our current system of care, in which we simply label behavior and seek to eliminate it with behavior management or, increasingly, medication, may interfere in a child’s development if we do not protect space and time for listening," Gold said in an interview on the subject with Psychology Today

Claudia Gold is on the faculty of the University of Massachusetts, Boston Infant-Parent Mental Health program, William James College, and the Austen Riggs Center. She is also on the advisory board of the Sackler Parent Infant Project at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and currently works as a consultant in Human Development at the Austen Riggs Center.

American Therapy Booth

Washington Gateway Main Street is thrilled to be partnering with Julie Ann Otis to present American Therapy and would like to invite you to participate. This civic engagement art installation will be housed in Blackstone Square September 25th through October 1. American Therapy, asks the questions, “How can we make social change by letting go of the noise? How do we hold unbiased, compassionate space for others no matter how much we disagree?"

Bostonians will work out their issues with America, sharing their frustrations and hopes about our current political reality. Artists armed with typewriters, sketchpads and a wealth of compassion will facilitate and create spontaneous work based on these reflections. The art works, ranging from two inches to three feet, will grow into a 200 SF mural over the course of two weeks.

Elected officials and candidates for Boston City Council are being invited to participate in the installation to demonstrate the importance of compassionate listening in political leadership.

Weekdays 4pm-sunset, Weekends 1pm-sunset
9/25-10/1: Blackstone Square Park, 1535 Washington St, Boston
