HUBweek at Heritage Park: Next Wednesday at 5:30pm
Join us for Geometry as Public Art: Celebrating the Immigrant Experience, a HUBweek featured program at Armenian Heritage Park on The Greenway next Wednesday, October 11 at 5:30pm.
Boston resident Greg Kerkorian, Principal of GB Kerkorian Partners with offices on Federal Street will offer the welcome
Lucas Cowan, Public Art Curator, Rose Kennedy Greenway will speak about Public Art on The Greenway of which Heritage Park is a part.
Don Tellalian, AIA Park’s architect/designer, will speak about the Park’s two key features and how they are integral to the Park’s design and why each was selected.
Morgan Atkins, Coordinator, Culture and School Climate, The Eliot K-8 Innovation School will encourage us to share our experiences over Tea & Desserts. She is providing key leadership in piloting our curriculum at The Eliot School – Geometry as Art: Telling a Story – prompted by the Park’s Geometric Abstract Sculpture.
The curriculum is designed to spark greater awareness of geometric shapes all around us and the expression of ideas and thoughts, celebrating what unites us and connects us, all while building common ground. The Curriculum encourages students to share their own families’ “immigrant experience” with the understanding that either we or our forbearers were all immigrants to the United States except for Native Americans.
Tea & Desserts at the Park is hosted by The Bostonian Hotel and MEM Tea Imports.
