“If art has nothing to do with people’s pain and sorrow, what is ‘art’ for?” -Ai Wei Wei
12 June 2013
Dear Friends,

Summer is here!  Welcome to another edition of our weekly newsletter. We hope to see you at our events and around the Boston-Cambridge community.

Cultural Agent Ai Wei Wei
invites you to make a
flower memorial
for the child victims of the
2008 Sichuan Earthquake.
Also commemorating the victims
is Ai Wei Wei’s 150-ton installation.
Art is a force that drives innovation

Congratulations Colton Valentine!
