    Five Reasons to Leave the House This Weekend
    Including La Sylphide performed by the Boston Ballet, Laura Veirs performing at the Middle East, and more. When you have a repertoire spanning as many years and as many types of music as the Boston Pops does, it makes sense to do the occasional recap show.

A sarpech is a traditional Indian ornament used mainly by noblemen on the fronts of their turbans. On the back is a shaft to hold a feather, so the wearer can add even more panache to their look. Twelve different gems adorn this ornament, nine of which form the standard combination of the talismanic navaratna. Object: Indian, Turban Ornament (Sarpech) (detail), 19th century, white nephrite jade base, with gems set in gold, and a gilded metal pin.

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’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.
