THE ISLES ARTS INITIATIVE goes live this weekend on Spectacle and Georges Islands! The Islands have been transformed into outdoor galleries as regional artists bring the spaces to life with their art and music. The highest praise and hearty congratulations to curator Elizabeth Lyons Devlin and her cohort for their undying enthusiasm which brought this idea to fruition (https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/iai2015?source=feed_text&story_id=10103109303427854&pnref=story). I think it’s even better than ice cream, but you can have it all. For more information, go to: http://iai2015.greenovateboston.org/
