In its inception, Stadium High School was to have been a luxury hotel. Instead it became a high school whose history goes back 100 years. The turrets and architectural features of the building can be appreciated, sure, but it’s more the soul of the building that creates the neighborhood and

Silent Salinity: after the dig

Hanging by the entrance to 950 Gallery is a work of art by Mary Coss that appears to be a jumble of words shaped from bent wire and suspended inside what looks like an old window frame. The words, mostly jumbled and unreadable, hang an inch or so in front
