Landscape architecture is a real art form, but it wasn’t recognized as such until the early 1900s. Isabella, always ahead of the game, constructed her Museum and its lush Courtyard to be impeccably designed and aesthetically beautiful. 🌸

Wednesday, June 27, 7:30 pm – Encouraging Healthy Bird Population In Massachusetts

Birds are not only winged harbingers of spring, they are harbingers of healthy ecosystems. 2018 is the ‘Year of the Bird’ and new research exposes the critical role that farmland and other diverse habitats provide for birdlife. In New England, birds associated with grass- and shrublands represent some of the most treasured wildlife in Massachusetts, but they are also some of the most imperiled and rapidly declining bird groups. Most of these birds depend significantly on privately-owned lands, agricultural landscapes, and the efforts of individual landowners in order to survive.

These remnants of Reims Cathedral look more like a Mondrian painting than Gothic stained glass! After being destroyed in WWI, an American ambulance driver collected some of the pieces and had them reset. He then gifted the glass to Isabella in 1919. Object: French, Fragments from Reims Cathedral, 18th century, stained glass.

It’s June, it’s hot out, the sun is always shining—what better way to enjoy the summer than with a cactus?🌵 Don’t let this plant fool you, though. While it may look soft to the touch,this cactus is plenty prickly!

Through April, 2019 – Alicja Kwade: TunnelTeller

Berlin-based contemporary artist Alicja Kwade (b.1979, Poland) has long been engaged with value systems, philosophical questions about the essence of reality, and with attempting to examine, if not resolve, issues of inherently subjective concepts such as space and time. In her sculptures, as well as installations, photographs, and films, Kwade occupies herself with the structural properties of everyday objects and questioning the veracity of matter, revealing possibilities for alternate realities, while examining social agreements and supposed truths.
