With a crimson apple at his side, a newsboy armed with fresh, hot-off-the-press newspapers grins down from a painting at visitors entering the gallery.

On Sunday afternoon, the Addison Gallery of American Art invited visitors to a drawing session at 2:00 p.m., featuring the Addison’s new exhibition “Eye on the...

Equipped with a pair of white lint-free gloves, Jamie Kaplowitz moves from photo to photo, drawing an English class’s attention to the details of images selected for the class. Kaplowitz’ job, a natural extension of her lifelong love for art, centers on creating meaningful connections between students and art. “I’ve always been an art kid. I always loved expressing myself and always took art classes after school when I was younger. Art has been a big part of the way I express myself and a...

Is the pen mightier than the sword? If you were to ask Lily Rockefeller ’14, a three-year Senior, New York City native and creative writer, the answer to this question would be a no-brainer. “[Last year for Spanish class], I was doing this research for an essay, and I was reading this semiotic linguist, and he was saying that the word for table and the table itself are inherently linked. What’s cool about that is that you can’t separate the word and the thing. In a way, words can describe...

The two of them are walking in the field, stepping against the bend of snow-dusted grasses under which mice and wood voles scrounge. Winter is not far away. “It’s nice to be back,” he says, breaking their silence. The wind bends the grasses, scatters the light snow in ghosts of gusts. It catches the edges of their jackets, billowing them open; he crosses his arms over his quilted coat to keep it closed. “I missed this landscape,” she agrees as if she were just thinking the same thing,...

In the video for their latest single, Arianna Warsaw-Fan ’04 and Meta Weiss ’05 are chased by security guards after interrupting a Marilyn Monroe performance.

Every day, Caroline Sambuco ’14 spends two and a half to three hours singing. “Music has become the defining aspect of my Andover experience. Most people don’t realize this, but I actually spend an equal amount of time, if not more, practicing my music than a varsity athlete, whether I am practicing solo or in one of my various ensembles,” said Sambuco. When Sambuco began her Junior year at Andover, she never imagined that classical singing would turn out to be her passion. Even though...
