Salon conversation hosted by Randi Hopkins
Free and open to the public

Art makers, curators, writers, educators, art lovers – how did 2014 go for you? Highlights? Low points? What kind of ACTION are you looking forward to in 2015? How can we take advantage of Boston's recent creative surge and up the ART ANTE around here? Let’s talk about it when GERTRUDE'S artists' salon takes an informal, wide-ranging, art-centric view of the current state of things at the BCA's Mills Gallery on Thursday, January 8, 6:30 pm. Maybe even get a few things GOING…

Bring a small dish to share, or just bring yourself, we'd love to see you!

Art as, in and with Education

Friday, June 13 | 7pm
Salon conversation co-hosted by Maggie Cavallo and Leonie Bradbury
Free and open to the public

Artists, arts educators, audiences, students – if you are curious and/or opinionated about the many many issues raised by considerations of art and education – please come join the conversation!

How do you learn about art? Through art?

The overlapping roles of art and education have a distinct effect on the lives of artists, arts educators, audiences, students and the general public. From identifying and being able to describe arts learning experiences, to the place (or lack there of) for the arts in K-12 Education – the relationship between these fields are complex and ripe with opportunity. Join Maggie Cavallo and Leonie Bradbury for an open discussion geared towards defining art as, in and with education. Whether STEM to STEAM, the role of teaching artists in our schools and community centers, considerations of art as research and learning, or the role of colleges and universities in the lives of emerging and practicing artists – these conversations can lead us to models for how we understand both the arts and education.
