More information>

Stop by the Harvard Ed Portal as we celebrate our very first exhibition of public art! North Allston-based artist Konstantin Simun has been called, “one of New England’s most respected sculptors, and a cultural treasure of both the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Boston.” His work has appeared at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, in national museums across his native Russia, and now at the Harvard Ed Portal – both indoors and out! Simun’s new exhibition Happy Birthday Venus! will be on display through the end of June, but please be sure to join us for the reception, where we’ll be celebrating Venus’ birthday (a homage to Simun’s use of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus as inspiration)....
