Last Saturday was the official opening of the “Community and Identity” show at the Rocky Neck Cultural center. It’s quite a nice show, and well worth the visit!
The opening was very well attended, and the food – provided by curator Rocky Delforge’s mother – was absolutely amazing. She could take up catering professionally, in my opinion.
But, back to the show itself. A variety of artists are showing works related to the theme of the show, with a wide variety of approaches and media. Give yourself time to contemplate them! Community participation is also encouraged: there is a wooden lattice cube in the center of the room with cards inviting visitors to write or draw reactions to the exhibit or to questions and ideas on the front of the card.
Many of the artists were present, so I snapped photos of them with their work:

The Rocky Neck Cultural Center is easy to locate. It’s at 6 Wonson Street, and is quite distinctive:
