Somerville Artists Receive Fellowships, and Medieval Gardens
Also, Peter Pan as a silent film, and roadwork.
1) Somerville Artists Get Fellowships from The Boston Foundation
Angela Cunningham and Wendy Jehlen, two Somerville artists, have each received a $15,000 fellowship from The Boston Foundation, according to a press release sent by the organization.
The Brother Thomas Fellowship is awarded once every two years and is named after Brother Thomas Bezanson, who was a Benedictine monk and ceramics artist.
Cunningham, herself a ceramics artist, works out of Mudflat Studio and has exhibited at the Korean World Ceramic Biennale and the Smithsonian Craft Show, among other places, according to The Boston Foundation.
Jehlen is a choreographer whose work incorporates a wide range of dance styles. She also works with deaf performers, sometimes including American Sign Language poetry in her work, according to the press release.
2) Medieval gardens
The Somerville Garden Club is hosting a talk by Priscille Baumann of Boston University on the topic of "medieval gardens." Let's hope at least one person is inspired to create a medieval garden here in Somerville. The talk begins at 7 p.m. at 167 Holland St.
3) Peter Pan
A 1924 silent film version of Peter Pan, long thought to be lost, is showing tonight at the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square. The show is at 8 p.m.
4) Curtis Street road construction
As a reminder, roadwork at the intersection of Curtis Street and Powderhouse Boulevard begins this morning at 7 a.m. and continues until noon. There will be detours around this area during that time.
A chance of rain this afternoon. Otherwise cloudy, with a high around 63.
