What better place to admire art than outdoors? The Boston Camera Club displays a 250-foot-long photography banner on the Fan Pier Public Green. Entitled “The Focused Eye: Our Unique Views,” the exhibition features 88 images taken by members of the Boston Camera Club. The photographs are aligned and connected by themes such as color, composition and subject to form a unique survey of local artists. An artists’ reception will be held on July 18 from 1 to 3 p.m.

“I think of the images as musical tones,” says Thomas Hill, president of the Boston Camera Club, “and they’ve been organized and sequenced into groups that you might think of as chords or melody across the entire banner.”

“Alice in Rainbowland”, presented on demand by Virtually OBERON until June 30

Take a colorful trip down the rabbit hole with “Alice in Rainbowland,” presented on demand by Virtually OBERON. This version of “Alice in Wonderland” sees Alice follow the rainbows into a new and energizing world of song, dance and celebration of queer identity. The show is a first production for Queer Bodies in Motion, a new LGBTQ+-focused dance ensemble that aims to celebrate the queer community through the arts.
