We were shocked and saddened to hear about the death of S. J. Brooks. S. J. was a valued member of the BCA staff when he worked here in 2012 as a member of our Visual Arts team. He was a kind-hearted, generous, and wonderfully creative person with a deep commitment to his work in the community. We extend our sincerest condolences to S.J.'s family and friends during this horrible time. https://www.google.com/amp/boston.cbslocal.com/2018/05/21/cougar-attack-victim-sj-brooks-washington-seattle-boston/amp/

We’re so excited to announce the launch of a new video about BCA’s artistic risk journey! When we commissioned Masary Studios’ Know No. last year, we knew the Cyclorama’s acoustics and lighting would be tricky to work with; we weren’t sure if we’d have an audience; and we could potentially lose out on earned income. Watch and see why taking the #ArtisticRisk was worth it: vimeo.com/267416978 (Barr Foundation)

    Artistic Risk: Boston Center for the Arts
    What does artistic risk look like? What kind of support is needed to allow risk-taking? For the last 5 years, the Barr-Klarman Arts Capacity Building Initiative and their arts organization partners explored these questions.

    Seaport Makes Space For An Arts Group
    Boston's Seaport district has been getting a lot of attention lately. As Amazon looks to expand there, Governor Charlie Baker is promising to sink millions into transportation. While luxury condos are being built on every corner, the city of Boston is also offering up a pretty unique opportunity - a 13,000 square-foot space right on the waterfront just for civic and cultural use.

Start following this issue folks. They have come knocking on our door 🚪. We will be faced with the issue of accepting a dispensary in the coming months so start doing your homework. “...This is all about location and they made it about marijuana,” said Vice President Bob Minnocci, who led the April 30 meeting. “I think the meeting was stacked. We would have not had the meeting if we’d have known Compassionate Organics would stack the meeting.” Minnocci said he and others, including President George Stergios, feel that their meeting wasn’t a fair representation of the argument. “Drugs are an enormous problem here,” he said. “We have created an open-air drug market. We’ve brought a lot of people in the throes of addictions right into the reins of drug dealers. That’s why the discussion of location is so important.” Stergios said one thing to remember is that those who voted for medical marijuana and recreational marijuana did so to decriminalize the drug and prevent unfair prosecutions. It was more of a social justice move, he believes, than a tacit approval for a marijuana facility next door...." The proposal by Compassionate Organics is for 633 Tremont Street. The Boston Zoning Code designates this proposed use as "forbidden" the highest level of restriction, due primarily to the overwhelmingly residential nature of the area above street level. There are 3 zoning code designations: allowed, conditional, and forbidden. To grant a variance for a location deemed forbidden, the applicant must in essence demonstrate an overwhelming need for that product/service at that specific address.

    Neighborhood Groups Stress location is Issue for Medical Marijuana Store:Many WSANA Neighbors Claim their Meeting Last Week was 'Stacked'
    Several neighbors in the South End this week believe that the meeting with Compassionate Organics medical marijuana company was 'stacked' with supporters, whom they say turned the argument to a referendum on marijuana and not a discussion of the location.

April 2018 in Review, From Robotic Kitchens to Fried Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites

Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel (645-647 Tremont St., South End, Boston): Tremont 647 had been serving the neighborhood for 21 years, including taco Tuesdays and pajama brunches, joined a few years later by its sister next door. Both will be replaced by Whaling in Oklahoma from Tim Maslow.

This article has 11 other Boston locations (Show)

Abbott’s Frozen Custard (1853 Massachusetts Ave., Lexington): This Rochester, New York-based frozen custard chain also has Massachusetts locations in Needham and Brighton.

The Bacon Truck Cafe (50 Terminal St., Charlestown, Boston): Boston’s bacon-themed food truck has put down roots with a casual breakfast-and-lunch brick-and-mortar location, serving bacon everything, including dessert.

The Ghost Walks (57 Stuart St., Theater District, Boston): A cocktail-oriented sibling to Committee, Cafeteria, and Bijou, located under Bijou, with showy drinks and a champagne vending machine.

Kung Fu Tea (1 Brighton Ave., Allston, Boston): Located inside of Super 88, this is the seventh Massachusetts location for the international bubble tea chain.

Rebel’s Guild (200 Stuart St., Theater District, Boston): Located inside the Revere Hotel in the former Emerald Lounge space, this revolution-themed restaurant has a giant cannon right in the middle and serves a seafood-heavy New England-y menu.

Talulla (377 Walden St., Cambridge): Located in the former T.W. Food space and owned by T.W. Food alums, this small restaurant features fine dining with influences from around the world.

Whole Heart Provisions (298 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square, Cambridge): This is the second location for the Allston-based vegetarian spot; it’ll expand to Harvard next with its grain bowls, falafel dogs, and more.

Clover Food Lab (6 Harvard St., Brookline): The ever-expanding Clover has closed its five-year-old Brookline location, which was a takeout-only spot.

The Maiden (28 West Broadway, South Boston): Oysters, cheese, charcuterie, and more from Esti, Drew, and Jon Parsons, located right by the Broadway T stop. This was a sibling to the now-defunct Sam’s at Louis.

Salvatore’s (225 Northern Ave., Seaport District, Boston): This Italian restaurant still has sibling spots open in Boston’s Theater District and in a few suburbs, but the rent was reportedly much too high here.

Sonny Walker’s (380 Warren St., Roxbury, Boston): This decades-old Roxbury bar was a live music institution.

    April 2018 in Review, From Robotic Kitchens to Fried Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites
    April 2018 saw the openings of lots of new restaurants in and around Boston, from a bacon-filled cafe in Charlestown to a Theater District club with, well, theatrical cocktails, not to mention a suburban stunner out in Easton, a couple ramen shops in Medford and Somerville, and new vegetarian spots in Cambridge and Brookline.

    Dissolving into one: ANIKAYA Dance Theater's 'Conference of the Birds'
    Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, Massachusetts. April 7, 2018. Strictly speaking, there is unity and there is division. What if there could be unity even with difference, if difference didn't have to mean division? Dance can probe such questions through use of oppositional and unison timing, as well as other choreographic tools and movement [...]

Pack your bags for a cosmic journey to an Interstellar Sanctuary. Eight artists imagine a healing and visionary site for contemplating earth’s challenges—particularly climate change—in this immersive multi-disciplinary experience. Some of these artists explore the profundity and darkness of this theme, while others have a more whimsical touch. Some artists focus on the concept of a journey away from earth, while others emphasize what is left here or what may await us elsewhere. Run of the Mills is Saturday, April 21, from 4–10 in the Mills Gallery. Tickets are only $5! Purchase here: http://www.bcaonline.org/performance/run-of-the-mills.html
