I noticed this image by Claire Beckett (Photography Fellow ’07) on the Photographic Resource Center’s blog and was happy to see it’s among the works being auctioned to raise funds for the PRC. The organization, an independent photography nonprofit on the Boston University campus, is holding a ticketed event this Saturday, October 25 and a silent online auction.
A legion of prominent artists is involved, including MCC-awarded photographers Karl Baden (Fellow ’99), Bremner Benedict (Finalist ’99), David J. Bookbinder (Fellow ’07), Lisa Kessler (Finalist ’05), Adam Lampton (Finalist ’07), Rania Matar (Fellow ’07), Mari Seder (Fellow ’03), Stephen Tourlentes (Fellow ’05), and Joshua Winer (Finalist ’07). Also included are Deb Todd Wheeler (Sculpture/Installation Fellow ’03) and Jessica Burko, who was featured in a Studio Views on this blog.
Another intriguing event that caught our bloggy eye: the Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF), which started this past weekend and continues with a number of upcoming events in the Boston area. On Friday, October 24 is an evening of short films called “Good Things Come in Short Packages.” Julie Mallozzi’s (Film & Video Finalist ’07) short film 25th & Mission is on the card.
The festival is sponsored by the Asian American Resource Workshop and features Asian American films and filmmakers, and a spirited engagement of the Boston community.
