The event sponsors are actively promoting investment in the Mall in order t0rest0re the physical integrity of the space to Shurcliffs original design and to see a revital- ization of the park as both a historical monument and a beautiful open space for neighborhood and visitor gathering and reflection. With the April 29 and May 17 events, the North End/Waterfront community joins the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum and others in a year-long celebration of the 150th anniversary of Dallin's birth. Cyrus Edwin Dallin (1861-1944), known for some Streaming Light Prado Fountain of Boston's and the nation's most iconic sculptures, struggled for over half a cen- tury against all manner of adversity to erect his sculp- ture of Paul Revere. This sculpture is an internation- ally known landmark of Boston, as is his Appeal to the Great Spirit in front of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1882, at the age of 21, a youthful and unknown Dallin won a City competi- tion for Boston's Paul Revere Monument. His work was selected in a blind comple- tion over far more estab- lished sculptors, including Daniel Chester French. Nev- ertheless, his quest to com- plete the commission was a 58-year test of perseverance and resolve. Dallin created seven different versions of the Revere sculpture before it was finally cast in bronze and installed in The Prado in 1940. Photos of all seven ver- sions of Dallin's Paul Revere bc on diaI~lay at tl~e Al:~rll 29 event and are exhibited in the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum in Arlington. The fifth ver- sion, on display in the Mu- seum, was reproduced in plaster and widely marketed by the Caproni Brothers Stu- dio in the early 204 century. The Cyrus Dallin Art Museum is the leading center for the study and enjoyment of Dallin's work, Located at 611 Massachu- setts Avenue in Arlington Center, the Museum is open Wednesdays-Sundays from 12:00-4:00 pm. Log on to www.daUin.org for more in- formation and a complete list of 150th anniversary events. The North End~Water- front Residents' Associa- tion (NEWRA) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to protect and enhance the living experience and residential character of the unique neighborhood. Mem- bership is open to anyone with principal residence in the North End/Waterfront area of Boston. Old North Church (offi- cially, Christ Church in the City of Boston), at 193 Salem Street, is the location from which the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent. This phrase is related to Paul Revere's midnight ride, of April 18, 1775, which preceded the Battles of Lex- ington, Concord and Arling- ton (Menotomy) during the American Revolution. The church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massa- chusetts. It is the oldest active church building in (Photos by Matt Conti) Boston and is a National Historic Landmark. Friends of the Prado was formed several years ago and helped implement sev- eral maintenance programs that brought improvements to the park and its trees. One goal of the April 29 and May 17 events is to grow and strengthen the organization to partner with the City of Boston Parks and Recre- ation Department -- which has care and control of the Mall -- and other supporting organizations with the mis- sion of bringing improve- ment and protection to the Mall. With this mission, Friends of The Prado be- comes a principal steward of the historical open space. The Paul Revere Memorial Association actively pre- serves and interprets two of Boston's oldest homes, the Paul Revere House and the adjacent Hichborn House. It provides increas- in~l~K diverse audiences witll a full range of educational programs and experiences based on historical issues and social history themes relevant to the sites, the neighborhood, and Boston from the 17th through the early 20u' century. The Asso- ciation maintains an impor- tant collection of Revere- made objects, household ar- tifacts, items commemorat- ing the midnight ride, and items related to Revere's life and work. Recently, the As- sociation has been involved in major capital restoration and expansion effort, The mission of the North End Historical Society is to collect and preserve the his- torical record and material culture of Boston's North End, to preserve, catalog, and present these resources in service of the wider commu- nity through publications, lectures, educational pro- grams, and exhibits. The mission includes ongoing efforts to bring together scholars and individuals knowledgeable and inter- ested in all aspects of the North End's history. The North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) is a private, non- profit with headquarters at the Paul Revere Mall. Its mis- sion is to provide affordable arts-related programming to residents of the North End/ Waterfront and the surround- ing neighborhoods. By en- couraging participation in the arts, NEMPAC's seeks to strengthen relationships with the community and enhance community life.
