Yang akan Anda lakukan

We'll explore the cultural richness of Boston's South End like locals. We'll meet a handful of artists at work at their SoWa studios, and see their art. The SoWa Art & Design District is Boston's leading arts destination, garnering recognition on a global scale. Departing SoWa, we'll walk through Boston's historic and eclectic South End neighborhood, learning about its architecture, the Villa Victoria community and public art. We'll visit Boston Center for the Arts and the Syrian Grocery. We'll work up an appetite and stop in at the bar of one of our favorite ethnic restaurants for a bite and something to wash it down. We'll end up at Wally's Cafe, one of the oldest family owned and operated jazz clubs in existence with an 'underground feel.' Wally's is surrounded by some of the nation's most prestigious music schools and is therefore known as the "training ground" for the next generation of jazz greats.

The featured SoWa artists include:
Hannah Blount: www.hannahblount.com
Caroline Bowden: www.bowdenart.net
Duken Delpe: www.dukeofart.com
Nasser K: www.nasserk.com

We like to think of ourselves as citizens of the world, and wherever we land, we seek out--and participate in--arts happenings that speak to us. Stephanie, who has been involved in projects in Mozambique, Venezuela and Haiti, has made her career in the arts, starting her own programs and organizations along the way. Felipe, a Chilean and born storyteller, works in international public health but helps out with tours when he is not overseas. We are also global foodies and love living local!

We'll start at SoWa Art & Design District and end at Wally's Jazz Club, and make stops at the Syrian Grocery and Boston Center for the Arts. We'll grab ethnic eats and drinks at one of the following: Myers & Chang (owned by well-known chef Joanne Chang), my personal Latin favorite Orinoco, or the newly opened Armenian Lebanese eatery Anoush'ella. We'll walk through the Villa Victoria community, and see outdoor murals and public art.

What an exceptional experience we had with Stephanie. We are so pleased we had her as a special guide. Why Special? She was so good at her knowledge of the local artists, supporting their start up initiatives is SOWA. Then a lovely stroll through the beautiful south area with visit to a Syrian/Lebanese family run business. Later in the evening we had a scrumptious Chinese dinner and walking along local family homes, with history stories, along Columbus Avenue stopping at Harriet Tubman statue and into a classic Wally’s Jazz cafe to finish this evening off. Stephanie’s knowledge is charming and she was flexible to our needs and questions. Definitely recommend this. Nice also to meet another tourist, Carlos who was a great Guatemalan.

Stephanie led my daughter and me on an awesome cultural/arts tour of the Southend. We met with three different artists in their studios, had a wonderful meal, saw several interesting sites and ended with some Jazz at Wally's cafe. It was great way to spend an evening and see a thriving area of Boston that's not on the usual tourist trail. Stephanie is kind, knowledgeable and generous with her time.

Stephanie and Felipe know a lot about the history of SoWa and Boston. It was great to see the neighborhood from a local’s perspective and I enjoyed meeting very different artists and ending the night with some jazz. The food was good too!

This was a great way to stroll the streets in the south area of Boston to take in the beautiful buildings and parks and general atmosphere of the area. The visit to the artists spaces was very special and delightful. The artists we met varied widely in their craft so each provided a refreshing experience into their art both visually and hearing directly what they are interpreting through their art. A real immersion into a lovely neighbourhood.

An interesting perspective on a charming part of Boston. I enjoyed seeing a different side of the city and hearing about its history and more recent transformation. Having exposure to a couple of the local artists was super fun. Stephanie and Felipe were knowledgeable, charming and warm guides who provided insights into the area. Loved the option of sharing a bite together and the restaurant options were great. We really enjoyed our selection. Ending at Wally’s Bar worked well because it gave us the option of staying on.
