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/

Tuesday, June 5, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Ferns and Native Beauty at Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary

Starting with a 100 acre woodlot, Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary founder and benefactor – Monson, Massachusetts native Arthur D. Norcross Jr. (1895-1969) – bought, bartered and traded to amass over 2,000 acres that he dubbed the Tupper Hill Sanctuary. Today, the Sanctuary is operated by the Norcross Wildlife Foundation and has grown to over 8,000 acres of forests, meadows and wildlands in Massachusetts and Connecticut. The Sanctuary is managed and maintained for the benefit of native plants and animals of New England, as Mr. Norcross originally directed.

Isabella loved modern dance, and even invited American dance pioneer Ruth St. Denis to perform at the Gardner Museum in 1908. This caused quite a scandal, as Ruth danced barefoot! 😱

We’ve been head-over-heels for Fra Angelico lately (can you blame us?) but our art collection has many more Madonnas to behold! This 16th century painting has similar radiating gold lines like the ones in Fra Angelico’s reliquaries, but the bright color palette and botanical imagery put this painting in a category all on its own. Image: After Martin Schongauer, The Virgin and Child of the Rose Bower (detail), mid 16th century, oil on panel.
