A year ago, Boston was knocked down for a bit. But not for long. This week is a time for reflection and some free activities as well.
The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA/Boston) is offering free admission for "a day of community, reflection, healing, & inspiration." on Tuesday, April 15, 2014.
Also on the 15th, from 5pm - 7pm, if you are willing to "Sing for Your Supper," you can get a free dinner entrée at Hard Rock Cafe Boston. Pick a song, then take the stage! Singers can choose from a selection of new menu items, including the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich, Arugula Salad with Shaved Marinated Chicken, Fiesta Burger or a Veggie Burger.
The Museum of Fine Arts Boston (MFA) is having a "To Boston With Love Community Day" On Saturday, April 19th. Admission is free to mark the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedy. The exhibit "To Boston With Love" is on display through April 30 and features 1,700 hand-sewn flags for Boston sent from quilters from just about every US state and from around the world.
The Boston Public Library (BPL) also has an exhibit called Dear Boston, which is on display through May 11th and displays the items that were left at the Marathon Memorial.
People from across the globe left flowers, posters, notes, t-shirts, hats, tokens of all shapes and sizes, and—most significantly—running shoes. ... To mark the one year anniversary, a selection of items from the memorial collection will be displayed—in one of Boston’s most important civic buildings—so visitors can once again experience the outpouring of human compassion they represent.
