All Day Cast: New Work by Pat Falco (Multi-Day Event)
Click here to RSVP

Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, February 2, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: February 2–March 30
Hollister Gallery
 
A keen observer of the world around him, Pat Falco uses a street art graphic drawing style and hand-printed text to reflect with honesty and wit on both social and personal issues. He chooses mis-tinted paints and found objects for his art surfaces, because, as he says, “I’d like not to make more waste than is already here.” Consumer culture, interpersonal relationships, the art world, our current political climate, heartbreak, gentrification, socioeconomic stratification, and fear of failure are a just a few of the themes where he mines incongruities for humor and pathos.
Babson Campus

With poses involving flexions, extensions and inversions, you will see your body getting enlightened.

5:00 PM - 6:30 PM Advances in Urban Agriculture and Ag Tech
How to feed a growing population with diminishing resources amid climate change is arguably the most important question of our time. And so it follows that urban agriculture (e.g. vertical farming, rooftop growing, farm-in-a-box) and agriculture technology (e.g. precision agriculture, crop data, seed genetics) are among the most watched areas of the food industry today.  

Note: Agriculture innovation touches technology, healthcare, sustainability, city policy/planning, finance and retail. This panel is not merely for those pursuing food business. 

Confirmed panelists (check back for updates):
Rose Arruda, Mass Department of Ag Resources
Shawn Cooney, co-founder, Cornerstalk Farms
Brad McNamara, co-founder, Freight Farms
Dan Pullman, Fresh Source Capital

In typical Food Sol fashion, discussion will be audience driven.  

This event is free and open to the public, no registration required.

“Maria Schneider is a national treasure.”  – National Public Radio
 
Maria Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization. She is known for her personal way of writing for her 18-member instrumental collective, tailoring her compositions to highlight the uniquely creative voices of the group. Her music blurs the lines between genres, giving her a long and diverse list of commissioners, stretching from Jazz at Lincoln Center to The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra to David Bowie. She is among the very few musicians to have received Grammy Awards in multiple genres.
 
Schneider is not only an award-winning composer and instrumentalist but an innovative business entrepreneur and music rights advocate. Her ArtistsShare Commission Project allows investors to step inside the world of musical composition, from the germ of an idea to a fully realized piece of music. A strong voice for music advocacy, her views on Spotify, Pandora, digital rights, and music piracy are frequently quoted in the media.
 
Generously supported in part by a Babson/Olin/Wellesley Presidential Innovation Grant; BabsonARTS; and the following Wellesley College sources: the Wellesley College Music Department, the Marjorie Copland Baum Memorial Fund, and the Florence Jeup Ford ’22, Mary M. Crawford ’22, and Virginia Ford ’48 Artist in Residence Endowment Fund

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM VINYASA YOGA

In Vinyasa-style yoga, “Ujjayi” breath is connected to movement which creates a flow of poses that encourages relaxation in the body as well as awareness of the mind. This class will shift your focus from everyday life to present physical sensations. The poses will strengthen, detoxify, and open the body, leaving you feeling toned, invigorated, and inspired.
