The mountain peaks are made from connected triangles. Sambruce began assembling the pieces in April for the mid-June opening. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Artist Wesley Sambruce brings his reflections on the Hoosac Tunnel to life in Kidspace with an interactive sculpture that asks children and adults alike to explore courage.   Lofted in Kidspace in the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Sambruce built a portal into another world. Flipping back the tunnel's heavy veil opens to meandering pathways paved with poetry, crawlways dropping off into unexplored caverns and open vestibules with hanging tendrils — all inspired by the 4.75-mile Hoosac

There isn't any doubt what writer Mike White had in mind when he penned "Beatriz at Dinner."   His insightful parable, brought to life by Miguel Arteta's skillful direction and a superb cast starring Salma Hayek in the title role, takes place at the very crux of humanity's social ills.   Expect diagnosis, but alas, no cure. You see, beneath the dramatic layers, both disingenuously polite and blatantly hateful, it's about the money. As my rich big sister Ann says, "It's always about the money, especially if they say it's not about the money."   Oh, it wasn't much different before we invented the stuff. Back then, the love of

The second row of another 20 paintings was unveiled with a small ceremony on Thursday, marking the seventh year the students of Drury art teacher Phoebe Pepper

Point of disclosure: I am a lifelong, died-in-the-wool car enthusiast. As a child I spent endless hours on the floor pushing toy cars around, speeding under the kitchen table, through my mother's legs, around the linoleum perimeter, over the saddle leading to the foyer for the long straight to my bedroom. There, circling to the cheers of my other toys, I issued an acknowledging "zoom, zoom, rhoom, rhoom," then scooted back into the hallway and made a hairpin right into the carpeted living room, the off-road part of my imaginary Indy 500.   Thus I know and embrace firsthand the special, magical relationship some of us humans have with the spiritual successor to Old Dobbin,
