MON 4/27: Art, Film, Music

Just a warning. The posts might be minimal this week, so I can catch up with things in general.


MON 4/27

5pm to 9pm
"Art in Bloom": Evening Open House
at Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave, Boston (The Fens)

Art in Bloom is an annual celebration when about 50 floral arrangements are placed next to artwork throughout the museum for a weekend. You can walk around independently, but there will be free guided tours -- as well as various performances.

This is a chance to see the "Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese" exhibit for free, which is usually an extra $23 to $25. Entrance granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Remember, you can still visit any Wednesday evening for free.

MON 4/27

7pm, 9pm
Independent Film Festival of Boston
at Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave, Boston (South Boston/Waterfront)

Both IFFBoston screenings are at the ICA. "For The Love of Movies" (7pm) is a documentary by Boston film critic Gerald Peary about -- wait for it -- film criticism. It might feel weird to watch "Art & Copy" (9pm), because a documentary about advertising might feel a bit like watching a advertising. It seems this is not a investigative expose, but a look a classic ads and the people that created them.

MON 4/27

Coyote Kolb, You and Your Pointy Ears
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

On a hot night, it might be good to drink a cold beer and listen to some laid-back alt-country. That's basically Coyote Kolb for ya. You and Your Pointy Ears seems like a one-man project playing somewhat-chill songs with guitar and electronics.
