Boston Center for the Arts 2018-2019 Visual Artist Residency Call for Applications is now live! Deadline for applications is February 19, 2018. BCA's Visual Art Residency is open to applicants whose work takes a broad range of forms, so artists with dance and movement-based practices, theatre and writing-based practices, and artists engaged in installation, sound, or other innovative media are all encouraged to apply. A key element of any application will be the connection the artist is interested in exploring between the germination and development of a rich creative idea and its active life connecting with the community outside the artist's studio.

    Naysayers don't get far when Dr. Bill Loesch is on the case
    He already has decades of community activism under his belt, but longtime Dorchester community leader Dr. Rev. Bill Loesch is focused on his next project. "Our goal is to convince the mayor to make an executive decision that all stores in Boston will no longer sell tobacco products," he says matter-of-factly during a recent sit-down interview in his Dorchester home.
