Charles River Speedway

Rejuvenation: July 20 - August 22
Delve into the life cycle of six historic Allston-Brighton landmarks through a curated exhibition Rejuvenation, presented by the Ed Portal’s Crossings Gallery and local non-profit Unbound Visual Arts. Through mixed media works by local artists, this exhibition surveys properties in the neighborhood that have gone through a cycle of birth, deterioration, and abandonment or renewal. The works on display will also explore parallel processes of rejuvenation in human life and ask how the past and future affect the present.


Upcoming Exhibitions at the Harvard Ed Portal


Romance and Reality: Posters from the Russian Revolution: September 7-October 19   
Reception: September 28, 5:00pm - 7:00pm

The Harvard Ed Portal and the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies are proud to present the latest Crossings Gallery exhibition Romance and Reality: Posters from the Russian Revolution. When the October Revolution overturned the longstanding Russian Empire 100 years ago, posters were particularly useful for getting messages and ideas across to a largely illiterate population. This exhibition explores the hope and passion of the Soviet Union’s early years, as well as the tensions inherent to building a new nation.
