  • Harvardwood Heads To... 9/11 Artist JANAI-AMI at the International Exhibition

    Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at 12:00 PM through December 11, 2019


    The 19th JAPAN International Art Exhibition and Competition, curated by Katsu Shimmin. At the National Art Center of Tokyo. Opening on November 27, 2019 as seen in ART IN AMERICA and ARTILLERY MAGAZINES (November 2019). This is the largest International Exhibition/ Competition of its kind in 2019.

    Janai-Ami, who began painting in response to 9/11 and had no formal training as a fine artist, returns in the style that made her known with her initial 3, 047 unique contemporary floral paintings in memory of the victims of 9/11.  

    Her debut at an International Art Auction in Los Angeles (featured on Paddle 8) in August 2019 proved that her passionate florals are even more sought after today, so much so that even her non-original work is commanding high prices with a Limited Edition print  of ENCHANTED selling in the thousands.

    The TOKYO MUSEUM show will be the first showing of an original in several years. The artist rarely parts with her originals anymore. This time the artist's pain of loss will once again be translated into a beautiful rendition of remembrance as noted parenthetically in the title "In Memory of Sam." The work is called "BELONGING." The artists ability to turn her heartache into something beautiful and translate that raw emotion, passion and love into an image, is provocative.  She has asked that the invitation to the Opening be extended to all members of the Harvard and Harvardwood community that are living in or visiting Tokyo in November/ December. 

    Formal attire.

  • Harvardwood Heads To... "Between Riverside and Crazy" at the Fountain Theatre

    Saturday, December 07, 2019 at 02:00 PM · $22.00 USD
    Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles, CA

    Join the Harvard Club of Southern California for the Los Angeles premiere of the Pulitzer Prize winning play Between Riverside and Crazy at the Fountain Theatre, with a post-show talkback with Los Angeles Times reporter Angel Jennings about gentrification in Los Angeles.  Price is $22 for Harvard Club of Southern California members, $32 for non-members.

    "Between Riverside and Crazy," by Stephen Adly Guirgis won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.  Walter “Pops” Washington is a retired New York City policeman. His wife has died, and his son, “Junior”, has just been released from jail. They live in a rent-controlled apartment on Riverside Drive in New York City. Junior’s girlfriend, Lulu, and Oswaldo, a recovering addict, also spend time at the apartment. Walter has been pursuing a discrimination suit against the Police Department, because he was accidentally shot by another police officer.

    The Los Angeles Times stated:  “Movingly acted…loud and bruising on the outside, sorrowful and soulful on the inside….The grittiness of playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis’ street-smart comedies has sometimes made it difficult to see the religious feeling coursing through his body of work…[T]hrough these brazen, helpless, semi-sympathetic sinners he has been conducting the most searching inquiry on the American stage into the mysteries and paradoxes of spiritual faith.”

    The Fountain Theatre has a café that opens one hour before the show that serves beverages and snacks, with comfortable seating.
