TUES 2/8: Art & Science

Well, at least we're getting snow in smaller increments like 1" to 4"...


TUES 2/8

6:30pm to 8:30pm
Sting! X: "Altered 'Scapes"
at The Beehive, 541 Tremont St, Boston (South End)

Art by: Randall Bachner, Chris Ballantyne, Gil Blank, Louisa Conrad, Franco Fontana, Ryan Johnson, Andrew Millner, Andrew Mowbray, Lori Nix, Matthew Rich, Casey Roberts, Christine Streuli, Alexia Stamatiou, Carolyn Swiszcz, A.D. Jacobson, Nicolas Party

Music by: Marty Rowen

The Beehive is presenting a new set of paintings & photography on its walls with an overall theme of unconventional approaches to landscapes. Without a deep knowledge of the art world, I get the feeling that some of these works were created by well-received artists.

Maybe they'll have the painting of Boston City Hall by Carolyn Swiszcz; it's one of my favorite representations of a less-than-beautiful building.

Marty Rowen will lay down some bluesy/jazzy Hammond organ music to dig the art.

TUES 2/8

7pm to 9pm
"Science by the Pint": Climate Change
at Tavern on the Square, 1815 Mass Ave, Cambridge, (Porter Sq)

Feat: "Elizabeth Thomas and her colleagues from Brown University"

As part of a general movement to spread scientific information in a relaxing setting where you can have a few drinks.

Elizabeth Thomas studies the climate data from that's stored in the snow and ice of the Arctic Circle. Yes, you can probably ask skeptical questions about 'global warming', but you might get a reasonable answer that could change your mind.

There may even be a chance to win prizes...
