Through Sunday, June 3 – Cao Jun: Hymns to Nature

Cao Jun was born in 1966 and raised in Jiangsu Province in southern China, where the lakes and rivers shaped his childhood environment. For eighteen years he studied and worked near Mount Tai, one of China’s most ancient places of worship and ceremonial ritual. Concrete experience of both aquatic sites and mountainous terrain informed Cao Jun’s approach to artistic creation. After formal training in Beijing, he settled in New Zealand yet traveled throughout Europe and the United States. More recently he journeyed to the polar regions and northern Alaska.

BREAKING NEWS: The three-year-old Pitbull-type dog stolen from the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s (ARL) Boston Adoption Center more than a month ago has been returned safe and sound. Late Tuesday evening, a concerned citizen contacted the MSPCA-Angell call center with a tip about Nick and his location. MSPCA immediately notified ARL, who picked up Nick and transported him safely back to ARL’s Boston Animal Care & Adoption Center. Shelter staff confirmed this morning that the animal is indeed Nick. Over the past six weeks the search for Nick has been priority number one. ARL’s Law Enforcement Department has worked closely with the #BostonPoliceDepartment to ensure Nick’s safe return. ARL is overwhelmed with joy to have Nick back with the organization, he is healthy and doing great. ARL would like to thank the Boston Police Department for their tireless efforts, the MSPCA for their quick response, and members of the media for getting Nick’s story to the masses. Please Note: Nick will undergo medical and behavioral evaluation and is NOT currently available for adoption.
