Our Marathon | April 16

Beginning on Wednesday, April 16 through Saturday, April 19 the Boston Public Library will host Our Marathon. This is a community project hosted at Northeastern University. Our Marathon will crowd source digital archives of pictures, videos, stories, and social media related to the Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath. Visitors will be able to examine some of the thousands of digital items presently in the archive and have the opportunity to add their own stories. Representatives will be available to assist those that wish to share their stories. 

This event will take place at the Central Library in Copley Square located at 700 Boylston Street in Boston beginning at 12 pm. Visit the archives and share your stories with others. 

Mending Boston with Clara Wainright | May 15th

MENDING BOSTON is a 12' x 4' impressionistic map of the areas most affected by the Marathon tragedy - with the Marathon route running through its center. Made of many pieces of fabric, it shows some of the Boston area's major streets and landmarks. The four corners will be dedicated to the four who lost their lives.

The purpose of MENDING BOSTON is to bring groups of people together to 'mend' and talk. The artist constructs the foundation and image of the quilt, but left it deliberately unfinished. "I just glued it down", she says," and the idea was that it wouldn’t hold together unless people mended it." >> Read More
