At the first-ever Boston installment of Art on the Roof, an
event that brings artists, patrons, and nonprofits together in cities across
the country, the dazzling 360-degree waterfront views were outshined by the
diverse work of eight local artists (including MassArt grad Stacy Scibelli's two-person

headquarters, the juried pop-up exhibit benefitted Dorchester
art-education nonprofit Dot Art, whose students got to display their creations
alongside those of the eight pros. Learn more at artontheroof.com and

George, the juror for the evening, created his own work of
art - his outfit's madcap mix of textures, colors, and prints.

tailor, a good cobbler, and a good butcher. He's got two of those covered. His
shirt and vintage-fabric jacket were custom-made by his tailor in NYC, and his
shoes, originally from DSW, have already been resoled three times! (He's still
looking for a local butcher, though.)
