Art Rox Roxbury

It's not too late to catch Roxbury Open Studios tomorrow from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Olde Town Trolley is running a FREE shuttle all through the neighborhood. The trolley runs up Huntington Ave with stops at Northeastern, the MFA, MassArt, and Brigham Circle. It cuts down Tremont to Roxbury Crossing, up Roxbury Street through Highland Park, over to Amory Street and Egleston Square, up School Street to Walnut, then Crawford and Quincy Streets and part of Blue Hill Ave., back to Warren and down through Dudley Square, across Northampton Street to the Piano Factory, the Mass. Ave T stop and more.  In short, you can get a ride.

Derrick Z. Jackson (yes, that Derrick Z. Jackson) is showing photographs of nature and historical figures.  Proceeds from his sales go to youth groups.

Here's a teensy sampling of some artists, their work, and some guests.

    It was great to meet you on Saturday.
    Thanks for heading me up to Napoleon's house, the highlight of the day for me.
    See you at the next art adventure?

  2. Absolutely! And I haven't forgotten and will send you pictures at some point.
