One of America's most historic cities is also among the most progressive

A leading intellectual and cultural hub, Boston has long been associated with a certain ivy league character, yet, thanks to the constant influx of young blood to its numerous universities, it is a center for fresh ideas and cutting-edge arts. Although its charming old neighborhoods are impeccably preserved, this is a modern and increasingly style-conscious city, proudly displaying the results of decades of intensive urban regeneration.

Respected gallerist in new territory

Respected gallerist in new territory Editors' Note

After 15 years on commercial Newbury Street, Howard Yezerski has moved to the grittier SoWa enclave – perhaps a more fitting base for the gallery’s eclectic, challenging roster. The new space opened in November 2008 with an installation by Moroccan-born Lalla Essaydi, who explores themes of female identity in the Arab world.

Other long-standing gallery artists include John O'Reilly, who creates fantastical photo-montages, and abstract painter Paul Shakespear, but Yezerski also nurtures new talent.
