Read this post all the way through for some great exhibits and some awesome live performances too! We hope those on Spring Break are enjoying it and that those still on campus are making it through the week!
Everyone knows about the great museums Boston has to offer, but how often do you actually visit them? Here is a great exhibit that SHOULD motivate you to go.The Blue and White exhibit just arrived at the MFA, and is sure to impress your inner art critic. This exhibit takes the decades old tradition of blue and white porcelain and applies it to contemporary ideas and issues, ranging from the public (the political landscape, cross-cultural interchange), to the personal (family, memory, the act of collecting), and to the aesthetic (abstraction, pattern, the role of decoration). Blue and white porcelain has roots in the Islamic world and Asia, and a strong presence in Europe and the Americas. Recent acquisitions to the collection include work by the ceramic sculptor Chris Antemann and pieces from the fashion duo Rodarte. Blue and White will be at the MFA until Sunday, July 14th. Read about this exhibit in the news by clicking here and here. Remember, all NU students get in free with their NU ID!
Do feel like being artsy, but don’t want to leave home? We have a solution for ya! Here are some arts and craft ideas, taken from the Web and Pinterest. Ideas range from making a fringe scarf, spray painting doilies onto canvas, and song lyric wall art. Enjoy!
It is also a great time to indulge in some great performances, such as that of Walter Smith III and the All Kylian ballet. So sit back, relax and enjoy these great shows, guys!
Keep your spirits up by attending saxophone player Walter Smith III’s concert at Berklee tonight. Smith, a Houston, Texas native, has performed all over the world, in numerous national and international festivals and on famed stages in the U.S. such as Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Smith will be performing at Café 939 (939 Boylston St.) at 8pm, the cost of admission is $10 and tickets can be purchased here.
Are you prepared to see dancers hanging from the rafters or being framed by 40 red-toned Oriental Carpets? These are just some of the tricks that choreographer Jiří Kylián has up his sleeve for his upcoming ballet performance “All Kylian.” The ballet’s premiere is tomorrow, March 7 and performances will go on until the 17th at the Boston Opera House. Northeastern has recently formed a partnership with Boston Ballet to provide higher education courses to dancers. Due to this partnership, students, staff, and faculty of Northeastern have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets of $30 to use for any of the “All Kylian” performances from March 7-17. To purchase tickets, please call the Boston Ballet box office at 617-695-6955, and mention you are a Northeastern student, faculty member, or staff member. You will need to show your Northeastern ID at the theater. Save us a seat!
