Join Newton Community Pride for an up close and personal evening of conversation with Newton resident and artist Nancy Schön. We welcome Jim Braude, host of WGBH Greater Boston and co host of Boston Public Radio, who will interview Nancy about her life in public art, her inspirations, her process, and her future creative plans. “I've been a big fan of Nancy's for years and was in awe when I finally met her. Trust me, you're about to be treated to a night of wonderful stories from a woman who's changed the face of public art.” said Jim Braude.
Although her contributions to public art are many, Nancy is best known for her charming bronze sculptures of Eeyore, Piglet and Pooh at the Newton Free Library, the Tortoise and the Hare at Boston's Copley Square and the iconic Make Way for Ducklings at the Boston Public Garden.
Proceeds from ticket sales will support Newton Community Pride and the Nancy Quint Schön Arts Scholarship for high school students pursuing arts in higher education. Ticket price includes an autographed copy of Nancy's book, Ducks on Parade, hors d'oeuvres, dessert, coffee, and a gift bag from Showcase SuperLux and The Street. Limited theatre style seating available.
