“[T]he spectacular invitation on the front of the building [...] lets everyone know that at some point in history, there was a little girl from Roxbury who used to skip up those steps to come here to think about art and think about creativity and to imagine. —Ekua Holmes ✨

It's #NationalDanceDay! Enjoy "A pavane," a court dance of the Renaissance with stylized movements and stately rhythms. Edwin Austin Abbey's 1897 painting employed his customary attention to detail, studying with great care the positions and gestures of each of the dancers.

When artist Susan Hoffman returned to her downtown NYC apartment after the attacks of 9/11, she found the windows blown in and a small tear in the righthand panel of this quilt, “Coastline” (1975). She has since left it untouched as a tribute to the lives lost in the tragedy.
