Get your cultcha fix this week (virtually)

Over the past few weeks, in lieu of my Monday “What’s happening this week” post I’ve tried humor by sharing instructions on how to wash your hands; a Netflix & Chill post sharing new movies coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu in April; creative musical covers like My Corona.

This week I’m going to suggest tapping into some of the rich cultural institutions in Boston. If you like their virtual tours / exhibits perhaps it will inspire you to also check out other worthy museums here in the US and beyond.

Boston Public Library

With all the clubs and concert halls closed, musicians and some of the major venues have gotten creative. All of these resources are currently free, though some welcome donations to keep them going while the stages remain dark. The collection includes: The Montreux Jazz FestivalConsequence of SoundClub Passim, The Boston Symphony Orchestra and NPR has created a list of live virtual concerts that is updated daily – just to give you an idea of your options.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Isabella Stewart Gardner MuseumIsabella Stewart Gardner: An unconventional life shares the extraordinary story of this influential woman and patron of the arts in words and photos. If you like how the museum shares this story, be sure to also check out the Building of Isabella’s Museum as well as The Theft, which attempts to tell what happened at the Gardner Museum on March 18,1990 when 13 works of art were stolen in the single largest property theft in the world.

Museum of Fine Arts Boston virtual exhibits including

Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation The post-graffiti moment in 1980s New York City marked the transition of street art from city walls and subway trains onto canvas and into the art world. From jazz, punk, and rap to funk, pop, and beyond, this playlist—created by “Writing the Future” co-curator Greg Tate—features music that inspired and came out of New York’s post-graffiti era.

Fashion Photography at the MFA The MFA made a serious effort to add to its fashion photography holdings. The MFA has been able to acquire a major archive of Herb Ritts, as well as important works by Baron De Meyer, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Deborah Turbeville, and others. This selection represents some of the highlights.

Related online exhibits:
21st Century Designer Fashion
20th Century Designer Fashion
20th & 21st Century Fashion Accessories

Museum of Science

Museum of Science at Home is how the MoS is fighting back during the Coronavirus epidemic so despite closing their building the museum has put a collection of STEM resources designed to bring the museum to you. Look for their daily live stream presentations.

Netflix and chill: What you watching

As we all hunker down and do our best to help flatten the curve, I’m putting my  weekly “what’s happening” post on hiatus and suggesting a prolonged “Netflix-and-Chill” approach while we ride out COVID-19. Below I’ve shared some of the programming I watched this week. Share what you’re watching in the comments section. I’d welcome your suggestions.

This week I watched:

Spencer Confidential Netflix film starringMark Wahlberg The movie is entertaining if you like the police detective genre.

Fourth Man Out is a comedy about a 24 year old mechanic who finally comes out to his best friends. It’s cute and funny and was a good 90-minute escape.

The Great British Baking Show (Season 5) w/ Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. I can’t seem to get into the newer episodes w/ Prue Leith replacing Mary Berry as a judge and the new hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig just don’t seem as fun to watch as Sue Perkins and Mel Giedrovc.

What have you been watching? Leave a  few suggestions in the comments section for me and other readers who may be looking for something new to watch.
