Summer Summits is a series of weekly outdoor gatherings on the terrace at the Carpenter Center organized around informal slideshow presentations by engaging voices in modern and contemporary art in the Boston-area. Taking the form of a personal travelogue, two presenters each week will individually share inspiring moments and sites–about art or not–experienced during travel near and far. Summer Summits is an occasion to enjoy drinks, desserts, conversation and music among friends, colleagues and our community under starlight on the stunning terrace of Le Corbusier’s Carpenter Center.
Evenings begin at 7:30 pm on the dates indicated below with slideshows starting promptly at 8 pm, each lasting about 20 minutes. While limited refreshments and desserts are provided, guests may also bring their own wine and beer. Free and open to the public.
