NINJAGO® Days Event During April School Vacation at LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston
Young ninjas from across New England will be transported to the ancient training Dojo where their favorite NINJAGO® ninjas train at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston for LEGO® NINJAGO® Days held during April School Vacation Week, April 23-29, 2018.Activities will include viewings of the new LEGO® NINJAGO® Master of the 4th Dimension 4D movie which premieres on April 7th, LEGO® NINJAGO® MINILAND takeover and scavenger hunt and LEGO® NINJAGO® themed build in the Master Builder Academy.In addition to the activities, guest can enjoy the newly renovated Coffee Shop which will offer a selection of Starbucks signature coffee and tea beverages, an expanded menu and will have comfortable additional seating. During NINJAGO Days, the Coffee Shop will even be serving NINJAGO-themed Frappuccinos. The new LEGO® NINJAGO® Master of the 4th Dimension 4D movie follows Nya, Lloyd, Kai and the gang on their new adventure with Master Wu. Master Wu interrupts them at their Dojo and remarks that they may be ready to learn the teachings of the “Scroll of the 4th Dimension,” a powerful manuscript that teaches the Ninjas to look at time and space in a very different way. However, their initial reaction leaves him doubting their commitment to the lesson, so he goes for a lovely cup of tea. Mistakenly, he drops the scroll on the way out of the Dojo and the Ninjas cannot resist trying to unravel its secrets with disastrous consequences for everyone! LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston is open daily at 10 am. Entry to the 4D movie theater is included in the price of admission. Advance tickets are suggested to guarantee admission and can be purchased online at www.legolanddiscoverycenter.com/boston.LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and NINJAGO are trademarks of the LEGO Group. ©2018 The LEGO Group.

Artists Take Action! Recent Acquisitions from the Davis

Featuring works acquired for the Davis over the past 10 years, this exhibition explores how artists use the print medium to confront the crucial social and political issues of their time. From the exquisite prints of Francisco Goya to the graphic posters of Shepard Fairey, artists have made art to challenge established thought and to energize a wider audience. Recently acquired prints will locate the work of artists in their historical moment, while highlighting the shared impulse to protest social injustice and advocate for change—an ambition that remains relevant for artists and collecting institutions today.This exhibition will be on display in the Robert and Claire Freedman Lober Viewing Alcove until June 10. The museum is closed on Mondays. Curated by Meredith Fluke, Kemper Curator of Academic Exhibitions and Affairs, in consultation with Patricia Berman, Theodora L. and Stanley H. Feldberg Professor of Art, Wellesley College.Presented with the generous support from The Mary Tebbetts Wolfe ’54 Davis Museum Program Fund.Image Caption: Corita Kent, The Cry That Will Be Heard/Why Not Give A Damn About Your Fellow Man, ScreenprintImage Credit: Museum purchase, Erna Bottigheimer Sands (Class of 1929) Art Acquisition Fund 2008.4 Image used with permission of the Corita Arts Center, Los Angeles

Somerville Massachusetts is located just northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. The easy access to Boston and Cambridge by public transportation and it's great parks and neighborhoods, makes Somerville a perfect choice to settle down and call home.

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals, college students and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles of residential homes and commercial properties.

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!
