All Day Law School Examination Make-up Day due to Snow

All Day Litha
Pagan/Wiccan holyday: The Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Many agricultural societies have observed the longest day of the year in some way: Stone Henge was created to glorify the rising of the sun on the Summer Solstice, the Saxons and Celts built bonfires to celebrate the power of the sun over darkness, and the Romans had a festival for Juno, wife of Jupiter, the Goddess of marriage, women, menstruation, and children during Midsummer. A time of fertility, growth, warmth, and light, Litha is one of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year for modern Pagans and Wiccans.[i]     
All Day Winter Session Begins
Winter Session Begins (18/WS)
All Day Yule
Pagan/Wiccan holyday: The Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. In the darkest of winter, Yule celebrates the return of the sun, when the days begin to get longer again and bring more light into the world, with feasting and merrymaking. Decorating a tree, wreathes, the Yule log, and caroling come from ancient Norse traditions. Yule is also associated with Odin and the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession of horsemen through the sky—which became Santa Claus and his flying reindeer. Romans held feasts, decorated trees with tin ornaments, practiced fertility rites under mistletoe, and exchanged gifts during the week-long festival of Saturnalia. The Celts believed the Oak King and the Holly King fought at this time of year to see if light or darkness would win out, which some Wiccans re-enact as part of their celebrations today.[i] Yule is one of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year for modern Pagans and Wiccans.  
11:00 AM - 3:00 PM Materials Matter 2 – Lavaughan Jenkins and Friends

The second of this two-part exhibit, Materials Matter 2 is a group exhibit of the work by Lavaughan Jenkins and four other Boston area artists. It explores the physicality of paint as an imperative, a rationale for the process and its conclusion. These two exhibits notate the continual elasticity of painting as it has been evolving over centuries, as an inverse mirror of the ever-accelerating changes in our culture in the Digital Age, and how that is changing the nature and perception of painting. It opens up the conversation among practitioners who are pushing the boundaries of the medium. The works shown are compelling both individually and collectively, as each artist has a different relationship with that conversation and with the material itself.

Opening reception 12/6/18 from 5:30-7:30 pm
