Etched Pottery And Blueberry Crumble At The 35th Annual Coolidge Corner Arts And Food Festival

It started out a rainy morning, but around 11am the clouds began to part, revealing the late-spring sun. No one was happier to see an end to the rain then the crafters working the 35th Annual Coolidge Corner Arts Festival at Devotion School this past Saturday. Chihiro Makio of 314 Studio in Somerville, who stood behind a glass case containing pieces of her "Flora" origami jewelry series, was relieved. "It's not pouring!" she said with a smile.

Brookline’s Best Saturday Of The Year, 35 Years Running : Art, Food, Community Spirit And Shops

From a logistical and aesthetic standpoint, Coolidge Corner is one of the best commercial areas in the nation. Eclectic shops and a diversity of restaurants line two walkable main streets. There is also the state's only independent, non-profit movie theater right in the heart of it all. Next to one of the Corner's landmark restaurants, Zaftigs, is the Devotion, a wonderful neighborhood elementary school.

Brookline Chamber, Town and Police to Hold Special Emergency Preparedness Breakfast

Speakers include Brookline Town Administrator Mel Kleckner, BPD Chief Daniel O'Leary, Officer Casey Hatchet of the Community Emergency Response Team and Officer Peter Muise of Brookline's Special Response Team.

Support Brookline’s Sarah Gladstone and 'Throw Back a Starfish' on May 20

Brookline High School Freshman, Sarah Gladstone, is more than a little amazing. We know Sarah because she is, so far, the youngest recipient ever of a BrooklineHub.com Youth Award. In 2012, she won the award; the only 8th grader to ever receive one. At the age of 12, she began raising money to save young woman in Africa who are around the same age as herself from a horrific fate; obstetric fistula.

“Upcycling,” Encaustic Art Just Some Of The Discoveries At This Year’s Open Studios In Brookline

It was a near-perfect weekend for the Brookline Open Studios this year. Sunday in particular was warm and sunny, bringing neighbors outdoors in shorts and cotton skirts to shop, eat brunch, and look at the work of local artists.

Brookline Artists Open Their Studios to the Public This Weekend

The Brookline Open Studios is this weekend, April 27 & 28, from noon until 6pm. This is a beloved annual event that I like to compare to children's trick-or-treating; instead of a bag of candy you come away with a new appreciation for the creativity of your neighbors, and, if you're in the market for original artwork, a new painting or framed photograph. It is arguably the most exciting event for local artists and art lovers alike.

‘One Billion Rising’ Events Across The Globe On Valentine’s Day; Brookline Hosts Event February 16th

On Saturday, February 16th from 6:30-8:30PM, the All Saints Parish, 1773 Beacon Street, will take part in One Billion Rising, a global initiative to get one billion people to rise up and dance in solidarity with women around the world who are victims of abuse. One Billion Rising is the brainchild of V-Day, a non-profit organization founded by The Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler. V-Day's mission is to end all forms of violence against women.

Climate Week Returns to Brookline

Recycle almost anything; navigate a climate maze, visit with the polar bear; read the same book as the rest of town and meet the author; shop for winter veggies—and more! Climate Week returns to Brookline January 26 to February 3 and will focus on sustainable, local farming while also offering dozens of ways for every resident to help reduce their wastes and carbon footprints.

Years In The Making, Brookline Teen Center Breaks Ground

After years of hard work by dedicated teen interns, volunteers and staff as part of a community-wide movement, the long-awaited construction of the Brookline Teen Center has begun.
