Studio 170 — Call for Proposals
Looking for a space to realize a creative project in the arts and present it to the public? Apply to be part of Studio 170, the Goethe-Institut’s new Open Space project. Starting in the fall of 2019, we are opening up our unique, flexible space in Back Bay to artists and creative minds as a “laboratory” for ideas, unaffected by rental, institutional or academic restraints. It’s our contribution to helping alleviate the lack of space for creativity in Boston. Application deadline is September 30.

Bauhaus in New England
The Bauhaus rose from the ashes of World War I in Germany 100 years ago. Its utopian ideas, inspired by founder Walter Gropius, attracted architects, artists and craftsmen from all around the world, challenging them to rethink design, its function in society and how it should be taught.
This centennial year we invite you to explore Bauhaus in New England and (re)discover how its ideals continue to live on.

July Recap: Last month we were all about floors! We’ve been prepping them with engineered carpet gripper, then added carpet pad to avoid creaking and make them all in all more sound proof, and finally laid down carpet. Multicolor bronze for the second and third floor as well as the stairs and hallways and a lively orange for the fourth floor. Also, the metal work has been painted, including the banister in the main staircase and the front door. Last but not least, the elevator guys are braving the heat, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s to update the elevator.
