Mummies! Pharaohs! Ancient Treasures!

A Secret Museum Hidden Within Harvard University

Sarcophagus at the Harvard Semetic Museum

I found the Harvard Semitic Museum by accident while walking behind the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. I saw the free admission sign and was surprised by the ancient treasures I found inside. Semitic is the word for languages and cultures of the ancient near east. You can see artifacts from the Israelite, Phoenician, Egyptian, Aramaean, Babylonian, Arab and many more cultures.

Small Works Capture Big Messages

Postcards to Maud at Chandler Gallery through September 7

"Postcards to Maud" is an engaging exhibition and fundraiser for the Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center on Sacramento Street. The premise of the show is that each artist created a 6" by 8" postcard for Maud Morgan, as if they were sending postcards to abstract expressionist and neighborhood resident Maud Morgan (1903-1999).

Big Works in Small Spaces at the Chandler Gallery

Where you’d typically see the big, bold letters of “Greetings From…” or an endearing “Wish You Were Here,” there are stunning oil still lifes, surreal portraits or a textural collage made entirely of green circles.

Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

The two artists on view at the new show opening Monday, February 15, at the Chandler Gallery, were unknown to one another when chosen last May for this current two-person show. But since meeting, both print maker Sarah Hulsey and painter Rhonda Smith agree their work has a lot in common.
