Richard Nonas: The Man in the Empty Space
MASS MoCA
Beginning February 13, 2016
Richard Nonas is an artist whose body of work has the ability to alter our sense of space, time, landscape and architecture. His totemic sculptures are made from earthy and industrial materials that include wooden railroad ties, granite curbstones, massive boulders, and thick steel plates. Each sculpture re-imagines space and terrain all over the world while maintaining its timeless character. In this display, Richard Nonas: The Man in the Empty Space at MASS MoCA, the artist’s quietly powerful sculpture will occupy and transform Building 5, the museum’s signature gallery, which is nearly a football field in length. Nonas will create a major new work specifically designed for the trussed, window-lined space. The exhibit will give visitors an opportunity to experience the way geometric forms can both command and alter their environment, and at the same time retain an intimate human scale. This exhibition will begin February 13, 2016 at MASS MoCA. 413-662-2111. 1040 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams, MA. (FREE W/ADMISSION)

CULTURAL AWARENESS
When people want to learn about a topic, they often turn to the library and find a book.

Williams College presents a unique opportunity to not only learn from books, but to have them answer your questions, too! The 2016 Human Library is, as its name implies, made up not of actual books but of human books – human beings whose unique life experiences make up volumes and volumes of information. The Human Library offers nearly forty different human books who can be checked out for periods of up to half an hour.The participants in the Human Library have been selected based upon their life experiences and/or the context in which their lives take place, and the purpose of the event is to support the community in building a greater understanding of one another, and of what it means to identify as something (“woman of color,” “graduate student,” or “gay man,” for example). Broaden your perspective by chatting with some books! 413-597-4277. Paresky Student Center. 39 Chapin Hall Drive Williamstown, MA.

FILM SCREENING:
Have you ever seen a “video essay?” This form of film is often as short as ten minutes in length or less, but can be much longer.

With the emergence of Youtube and ubiquitous web cameras, nearly anyone with a computer can make a video essay. Williams College graduate Kevin B. Lee (English ’97) has achieved far reaching acclaim for his many video essays. He will screen several, including Transformers: The Premake. He will discuss the history of video essays and explain what he sees as the mission of this emerging genre. 413-458-5612. 50 Spring St, Williamstown, MA ($)

COMIC BOOKS
Some teachers and parents are disappointed to find students choosing comic books over novels. Others argue that comic books, which do typically have words in them, can help instill a love of learning in kids who might otherwise not be interested. One thing is for certain, and that is that comic book fans have a lot to discuss. Each major American comic book tends to have several iterations, by different artists, writers, directors and television creators. Just ask “What is the best batman series?” and you’re bound to start a heated, yet fun, discussion. Readers ages 9 to 13 are invited to the Lee Library to discuss their favorite and least favorite comics. 413-243-0385. 100 Main St Lee, MA. (FREE)

SHAKESPEARE
Shakespeare has had one of the longest lasting impacts of any author. His plays from the 16th and 17th century are still performed regularly and are often required reading in high school. Even if his plays fell out of popularity he would still have made his mark on the English language, since he invented hundreds of words we use every day including “amazement,” “hint,” “mimic,” “lonely,” “generous,” and “secure.” Hear some of Shakespeare’s words in action at the Tina Packer Playhouse performance of Twelfth Night. A post-show discussion will follow. 413-637-1199 x131. 70 Kemble Street. Lenox, MA. ($)
