For Art Week Spring 2017, Resistioke and Wee the People will join forces for the first time in a collaboration that will pull together an unsuspecting audience, using a variety of art forms, and will provide activities for children and their parents to learn about current issues of social justice.
Join us for our spring Open House as we herald in the new season with art exhibitions that celebrate the ocean from Cape Cod to the Gulf of Maine. There will be indoor and outdoor activities including live music and floral arranging demonstrations. Take an estate and garden tour, be part of a traditional Maypole celebration, and enjoy music performed by the Village Band and Highfield Hall’s Music Director, pianist Robert Wyatt, playing his favorite songs of spring. Admission is free, and all are welcome.
Special for ArtWeek, Tony Williams Ballet Company (producers of the “Urban Nutcracker”) will open their studio for public viewings of their rehearsals in progress for “Color of Life,” a brand new rock ballet set to Ken Nordine’s Jazz Album, “Colors” mixed with a medley of rock music favorites from the past 60 years.
Join us for an exhilarating, mind-bending, and amusing afternoon for all ages as we puzzle through Sol LeWitt’s conceptual art-making process and together make a mega city in the Sculpture Park. Architects from BSA Space (Boston Society of Architects) will lead a sculpture park challenge with their extraordinary LEGO® collection.
Join us for an EcoArt Workshop at the Launch of Boston’s New Green Learning Center! We will make a sculpture of 1000 origami cranes that will help bring peace and good fortune to all who participate. The finished product will be showcased at Boston GreenFest, August 11 – 13. Other projects from recycled/earth materials will include egg carton art, plarn (plastic bag yarn) weaving and rock art.
The Ceramics and Painters Guilds of LACS join together in presenting “Freedom of Expression,” an exhibition highlighting the best works of artists of both guilds. Special for ArtWeek, Arthur Halvorsen will be giving a talk about his process and inspiration. His work evolves through creative repetition; making the same form over and over, tweaking it with sprinkles of spontaneity. Halvorsen says the best pleasure is in the creativity, not expecting the ordinary.

She will welcome audience accounts of their own writing experiences, answer questions, and sign books.
Participants will enjoy a tasting of 7 types of raw fish, prepared using various Japanese culinary techniques.Chef Masaki will explain some of the origins of the fish he chose, how to make some of the marinades as well as his thoughts around the presentation of a classic Japanese dish.
