October 21, 2006 Jane Farver and Bill Arning of MIT asked Big RED & Shiny to co-host a tour for the Friends of Boston Art group on Saturday, October 21. Big RED 's Matthew Nash helped put together a tour of studios and alt-spaces in Boston, and a great day was had by all.
The tour started at MIT to view some new or recently-returned public sculptures, a visit to the Berwick Research Institute to see the work of Liz Nofziger, Christy Georg, Chris Wawrinofsky and Ben Durrell. From there it travelled to the studio of Alfredo Conde, and on to Space Other.
The last stop of the tour was a visit to The Distillery for Artists Foundation Gallery too see Bruce Myren, Jen Nazzaro and Candice Ivy. The group stopped by Second Gallery for a quick chat with director Rebecca Gordon, and the studios of Erik Levine, Andy Mowbray and Cristi Rinklin.
The day ended at the home of Marjory Jacobson for cocktails and conversation.
