This week, Cedric Douglas is an artist with a mission – and a truck.
Last Wednesday night, Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined the Boston Foundation and the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative to introduce Cedric as the winner of a commission (and up to $500,000 in grants and technical support) to design and install a piece of public art in the Upham’s Corner section of Dorchester that represents the community and the promise of the arts in the Fairmount Corridor of Boston.
But this effort is as much about the process as it is about the product. The commission, and even the application process that preceded it, requires the artist to engage and give community members an active role in the design, siting and development of the artwork.
The Boston Foundation Board approved $1,309,000 in single and multi-year discretionary grants to be paid out beginning in April 2014.
The public school landscape in Boston looks sharply different than it was even five years ago, according to a Boston Indicators Project special report released today in an Understanding Boston forum at the Boston Foundation. Taking Stock: Five Years of Structural Change in Boston’s Public Schools, takes a broad look at the overall makeup of public schools in Boston to provide a snapshot of how school structures and student performance have been affected by reforms.

At the heart of everything the Boston Foundation has done over the last century—every grant it has made, every innovation it has supported, every cause it has championed—is its endowment, the Permanent Fund for Boston. Established through bequests left by hundreds of visionary and forward-thinking Bostonians since 1917, this essential fund fuels all of the Foundation’s work and provides the resources that have sparked positive change and enabled new ideas.
