The team looked at dozens of events happening in and around Boston next month, and here are our picks – art, health and wellness, and even rock and roll Bingo! We suggest checking ahead to be sure the event is still taking place. And let us know if you’d like us to add events to the list.
October 1, 2021 to January 7, 2022, at Endicott College: The Amazing Women’s Club: The Co-creation of an Heirloom with Simone Salvo & June Southworth – Artist Simone Salvo recorded her grandmother’s stories and creative legacy to preserve them. This exhibition presents an multi- and inter-generational dialogue. Scultpures by June Southworth will be exhibited for first time in decades, along with photos, videos and new media work by Simone Salvo that tells the story of the relationship between a granddaughter and grandmother to, as June Southworth said, making sense out of nonsense.
