Saint Rosa Venerini by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Rosa was born in Viterbo, Italy, in 1656, then a part of the Papal States. She was the daughter of Goffredo Veniti, a physician, and Marzia Zampichetti, who was of an ancient family of Viterbo. They had four qhildren Domenico, .Maria Maddalena, Rosa and Orazio. Rosa joined a Dominican women's community briefly during 1676, but returned home to comfort her mother after Goffredo's sudden death. Rosa's brother who was 27, also died. Her mother was heartbroken at their passing and died within months. When her family crisis was over, Rosa invited local women to her home to recite the Rosary in a group. This eye-opening experience shaped Rosa's future, pointing her toward her ulti- mate vocation in the field of teaching. In 1685, with the help of two friends and the approval of her local bishop, Rosa opened Italy's first public school for girls. It was sup- ported by some Church and state officials. Many of her critics were silenced by the school's success in uplifting the character of young women. Rosa left Viterbo and founded ten schools in the Diocese of Montefiascone between 1692 and 1694. She also trained a local successor, the future Saint Lucy Filippini. In 1713, Sister Rosa managed to open a school in Rome, three years later, Pope Clement XI paid a visit accompanied by eight cardinals. Witnessing the Work of Rosa Venerini's teachers, the Pope thanked her, declaring: "With these schools you will sanctify Rome." The success of Rosa's work also increased her daily responsibilities. She under- took difficult journeys for the sake of her work, while maintaining a strong prayer life that kept her oriented toward God's will in all of her undertakings. She sought spiritual direction from Jesuit priests who helped her to combine an active apostolate with a life of contemplative prayer. She cultivated a close daily relation- ship to God while working to establish over 40 schools. Sister Rosa passed away in Rome, on May 7, 1728; she was beatified in 1952. It was not until sometime after her death that Blessed Rosa's lay school teachers were or- ganized as a religious congregation: they are found in America as well as in Italy, for the Venerini Sisters have worked among Italian immigrants since early in the twen- tieth century. Saint Rosa was canonized on October 15, 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI. Her feast day is May 74.

The six-day arts and culture event is the vision of Boston-based philan- thropist and arts enthusiast Ted Cutler, who believes in the power of arts to educate and inspire creative think- ing. This year's programming will continue to reflect Cut- ler's drive to instill a love of the arts in the audiences of tomorrow through a robust children's section which will include performances geared towards younger audiences, workshops and educational hands-on activities for youth of all ages. "The arts have the power to inspire people of all ages, from all backgrounds. But to be inspired, individuals must have both access and expo- sure," said Cutler. "That's where Outside The Box comes in. we want to bring a com- munity together, in a cel- ebration of all the arts has to offer. They'll be exposed to acts they never imagined." During its inaugural pre- sentation in 2013, Outside The Box featured artists from across the world, showcasing the best of theater, dance, music, spectacle arts, magic, and culinary arts demonstra- tions. The nine-day festival drew more than 650,000 vis- its, resulting in an enormous impact to the local economy, according to the Greater Bos- ton Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Events like Outside The Box spark the city's imagina- tion and make art accessible to all of Boston's residents," said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. "Boston has a thriving arts community and it's part of what makes our city a great place to live. We wel- come the opportunity to show- case our local organizations, be inspired from artists around the globe, and look for- ward to the return of Outside The Box." The Managing Director for the 2015 Outside The Box festival is Susan Shields Darian. The Artistic Director, Georgia Lyman, is a Boston- based performer and producer who served as associate curator for the "2,013 festival. Lyman is curating acts from performers who were previ- ously featured in the 2013 festival as well as reaching out to other artists and presenters to widen the experience for this year's event. "We relish the opportunity to showcase artists of all performance disciplines, to expand their audiences, to offer smaller groups the chance to perform for large crowds, to celebrate estab- lished organizations, and to hook the people of Boston into becoming more active participants in the local arts community," said Lyman. *There's no better job in my book."
