HSIP interns and friends, get ready to snap some cool photos and experience breathtaking art and world-class architecture! You won’t want to leave L.A. without visiting The Broad.
See masterworks in one place including Yayoi Kusama’s dazzling Infinity Mirrored Room. Downtown Los Angeles’ must-see, The Broad, is the new contemporary art museum by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad—home to one of the most prominent collections of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. Fully booked through July, but we managed to snag tickets just for HSIP participants and friends/alums who want to meet them!
This event is organized by the Harvardwood Summer Internship Program, but ALL alums are welcome. Just RSVP below—and soon, because there are only 18 spots!
Meet at 6:00 PM on Grand Avenue at the Plaza (the grassy area by the museum’s gift shop) for a light snack or bite (coffee kiosks and hot dog stands), catch up, and get ready to go in together by 6:30 PM. Exhibits close at 8:00 PM; afterward, take time to explore the rest of Grand Avenue—one of the foremost destinations for art and culture in the world!
If you end up being unable to attend, please cancel your RSVP so that someone else may take your spot. Priority will be given to HSIP 2016 participants.
Executive producers Terrence Malick AB '65 and Natalie Portman AB '03 present this haunting and unflinching nonfiction film. When gang leader Rob Brown is sentenced to prison for a fifth time, he must confront his role in bringing violent drug culture into his beloved Ojibwe community in northern Minnesota. As Rob reckons with his past, his seventeen-year-old protégé, Kevin, dreams of the future: becoming the most powerful and feared Native gangster on the reservation.
The Seventh Fire premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and was selected for a special screening at the White House in March.
The premiere will be followed by a discussion with director Jack Riccobono AB '03 and main subject Rob Brown.

Harvardwood is currently looking for an undergraduate student who is eligible for the Federal Work Study Program to assist with weekly administrative duties and other projects as needed. All work can be done online, and the hours (6-10 per week) are very flexible.
This is a great way to learn more about Harvardwood, the programming we offer across our nationwide chapters, and other opportunities that undergraduates and alumni can enjoy. It's a particularly great position for someone interested in exploring the arts, media, and entertainment after graduation!
Last fall, we awarded Harvardwood Heroes grants of $500 each to Harvard alums and Harvardwood members who are dedicated to using the arts to engage in meaningful service with four organizations worldwide. Now that it's been half a year since we selected our Heroes, we caught up with them recently to find out how the Harvardwood Heroes grant has impacted their amazing and diverse community service projects.
