A date has now been set for installation of the Curley Project poster exhibit at City Hall: the exhibit will open with a reception on St. Patrick’s Day 2015! This is a particularly fitting date, as it marks the centennial of the actual day that construction began on the Curley house at 350 The Jamaicaway.
This exhibit will feature student work previously displayed in the Casella Gallery (http://www.wit.edu/physical-plant/event-planning/casella-gallery.html) at the end of the Spring 2014 semester and in the Wentworth Alumni Library at the end of the Summer 2014 semester (http://www.wit.edu/news/2014/08/2014-08-11.html
). It will also feature new student work produced during the Fall 2014 semester.
The exhibit will be installed in two separate spaces at City Hall: the Mayor’s Neighborhood Gallery and the Mayor’s Mayor’s Office Display Case.
Yesterday we met with John Crowley, Director of Special Exhibits at City Hall, and Liz Sullivan, Chief of Staff for Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley, in order to make plans for the installation of a Curley Project poster exhibit at City Hall.
This exhibit will feature student work previously displayed in the Casella Gallery (http://www.wit.edu/physical-plant/event-planning/casella-gallery.html) at the end of the Spring 2014 semester, as well as new student work that will be produced during the Summer 2014 semester.
Crowley gave us a tour of various potential exhibition spaces within City Hall.
Details are still being worked out regarding the exact gallery space and dates for the exhibit. We’ll post an update as soon as we know more.
As an added bonus, we had the opportunity to visit The Curley Room, which is located inside the Boston City Council suite on the 5th floor of City Hall.
