Who is Using My Boston Monument Guide Book? Myrna Woodworth From Peabody, MA Is Using It!


Who is Using My Boston Monument Guide Book? Myrna Woolworth from Peabody, MA is Using It!

Hi Mr. Gallo:
I received my copy of your book today and spent some of my afternoon going through it.  It is really wonderful!  I am surprised it is not for sale at the Tourist Bureau or in Quincy Market.  It really should be.  If I were coming to Boston as a tourist, this would be wonderful to have.
This fall when the weather is cooler, my husband and I will be going into town again to spend the day and will use this book as our guide.
Many thanks for writing such a wonderful historic guide book.
Myrna Woodworth

Who is Using My Book As A Guide to Boston's Monuments Boston, MA?

Ms Gallager and The Diamond Middle School Students beginning their adventure in seeking the dozens of Boston Monuments in Boston, MA are here below at the Fenway entrance of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, MA

Using my guide book "Boston Bronze and Stone Speak To Us" as their tool to discover the many art/historic treasures within our great city of Boston, they find here Antonio Lopez Garcia sculptors' modern sculpture " Night and Day" . Lopez was first  associated with "magic realism"and juxtaposed peculiar nominations of images people and places, resulting in mysterious interesting compositions such is the one below.

" The hallmark of Lopez's work is its timelessness; he is an old master in the contemporary world," said exhibition curator Cheryl Brutvan MFA. 

Inspired by his two grandchildren one awake the other asleep "Baby Head" amazes all of us of the simple wonders of this world.

Ms Diane Gallager and Diamond  Middle School Students
Thank you to the Diamond Middle School Students and Staff for another exciting year.

Another Exciting Boston Bronze and Stone Talk With Both Students and Teachers at The Lexington, MA Diamond Middle School

Always a pleasure to have lunch and give a talk to the students and staff at Diamond Middle School in Lexington, MA about Boston's Monuments. My yearly talk consists of a brief explanation of the many dozens of Boston's Monuments created and erected for all of us to learn about our great leaders past and present. My talk prepares these students for their yearly field trip adventure into Boston. When the Diamond School  students find and discover these historical artistic works on the streets of Boston, it is both a fun and educational experience for all.

My presentation and the interactive educational activities provided by the school staff, that follows my talk, reinforces these students excitement, interest and involvement about further learning of Boston's leaders, Boston's 500 year history and Boston's art and artists.
The love of learning between student and teacher is the highest of all the loves. Teaching students to learn for themselves is of the highest order as both Socrates and Plato have always said us.

Thank you for inviting me once again!
