The Poesie: Mary Tudor Speaks of and to Titian’s Women. 3-5 pm. Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Yes, this sounds fancy. I decided to throw in a little curve ball. This is the world premiere of a dramatic monologue written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and theater critic Hilton Als in response to the exhibition Titian: Women, Myth, & Power. Mary I, the first queen regnant of England, married Philip II of Spain in 1554, shortly after the young prince commissioned six paintings from renowned Renaissance artist Titian. Als’ monologue considers Titian’s poesie, or painted poetries, from the future Queen’s perspective. More information here.
Sunday, March 6
Farm Fiber Day at Russell’s. Whoo, busy weekend there in Wayland. 10:30-3:30 pm. 45 vendors, all of the fiber-y variety. I am only going if there will be cute lambs running around. More info here
Monthly Walk with Weston Forest & Trail Association – Rail Trail, Town Hall trail and Sunday Woods – 2 pm. Learn about the Weston Plant Pollinator Alliance garden project and visit the site of a recent Eagle Scout project with a lovely bench overlooking the pond. Then walk a loop into the woods behind Town Hall and then back to the Rail Trail to learn about the murals painted under the Concord Road overpass. Folks with limited time can choose to head home at this point in the walk, while others can stay with our leader and head back into the woods and trails for more exploration. More information here.
