Shepard Fairey, We The People Kickstarter campaign

art, public art, protest art, protest Trump,

Shepard Fairey is once again using his art to make a political statement, and I couldn’t be happier to say that I’ve donated to the We The People Kickstarter campaign, which closes this Tuesday, to show my support.

The campaign which includes works from Shepard Fairey, Jessica Sabogal, and Ernesto Yerena has raised nearly $830,000 from more than 13,000 individual donors. The money will be used to take out full page advertisement the day of Trump’s Coronation Inauguration in The Washington Post and include posters for people to hold along the parade route in Washington, D.C.

If you would like to learn more about the campaign and possibly make a donation as well you can visit We The PeopleWe the People

Men in kilts

men in kilts, handsome man, male fashionI’m unsure what it is about the kilt but gay men have an affinity for this article of clothing so I’m creating a new weekly post showcasing men in kilts.

Let me know what you think. Do you have a photo in a kilt that you’d like me to share? Forward it to me at

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King Day and while I will be working, the holiday is observed by many companies and organizations here in Boston. There are lots of events taking place in and around Boston paying tribute to King’s legacy. In honor of King, two of my favorite museums are open and free to the public.

Should you have the day off stop by and check out either the Isabella Stewart Gardner or the Museum of Fine Arts on Monday.

Bullfinch Crossing development by Gov’t Center

The HYM Investment Group, Government Center Garage Redevelopment, Boston RealestateThe demolition of the hideous Government Center garage is underway according to the website Replacing the ugly garage will be “Bulfinch Crossing”, (referred by many as Government Center Garage Redevelopment). The massive project that totals 2.9 million square feet will include a pedestrian-friendly streetscape, plaza and six mixed-use buildings on two blocks spanning 4.8 acres. The development is sandwiched between Government Center, The North End, Beacon Hill and The West End.

When fully built, there will be 800+ housing units, 200 hotel rooms, 1.15 million gross square feet of office space and 82,500 gross square feet of retail space at Bulfinch Crossing. The reconfigured garage will contain approximately 1,100 parking spaces which is significantly less than the original garage held but the transformation will hopefully be worth it.

U2 Joshua Tree tour coming to Boston June 25

u2-joshua-tree-tourPerhaps you didn’t hear but earlier this week the rock band U2 announced that they would go on a 25 city stadium tour around the world in honor of the 30th anniversary of their Joshua Tree album which sold more than 25 million records and went on to win a Grammy for Album of the Year in 1987.

The band will perform the album in its entirety each night. Speaking to the media, U2 guitarist, The Edge, said, “It seems like we have come full circle from when ‘The Joshua Tree’ songs were originally written, with global upheaval, extreme right-wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk. To celebrate the album – we decided to do these shows; it feels right for now.”

U2 will come to Boston for one night on Sunday, June 25th. You can find more information about tickets which go on sale this Monday here.
