This past weekend, on Saturday, June 4, Lead Educator Bernard Trubowitz led an Experience Art & Architecture Tour for fifteen enthusiasts! This tour was free and open to public as a part of the Common Boston Fesitival.
This tour is designed to have vistors learn more about the aesthetic elements of Old North Church. This hour long interactive tour examines the exterior and interior architecture of the church as well as three fine art pieces inside the church. Visitors have the opportunity to consider these visual elements within the context of the 18th and 19th centuries and decode their meaning by looking, discussing, and looking again. There’s always more than meets the eye! Consider scheduling one for yourself by contacting Director of Education Erin Wederbrook Yuskaitis.
For one weekend only, the Boston Society of Archiects (BSA) Foundation presents the 2016 Common Boston festival of architecture and design (#CB16). The first ever open house architecture festival in Botson will unlock the doors to many architecturally, culturally, and historically significant sites, encouraging residents and tourists to consider why design matters, while tapping into unique stories that illuminate our vibrant communities. From historic sites to office towers to community gardens, participants get unparalleled access to more than 50 unique sites that contribute to making Greater Boston such an exceptional place to live, work, and play.
