Peruse a public art exhibit along the Harborwalk

“Of Many Minds,” a new public art exhibit created by Michael Alfano, brings 20 sculpture installations to the Boston Harborwalk in the Charlestown Navy Yard.  Alfano is a professional sculptor with over 20 years of experience who specializes in creating “fine art bronzes, portraits, and monumental works that are figurative-based, philosophical, and evocative,” according to his website.

These works can be viewed while doing another outdoor activity like walking or biking through Boston, and serve as a nice complement to views of the Boston skyline. Each of the sculptures has a quote to further the conversation and foster ideas, allowing for the discussion of different views, perspectives, and meanings the audience can draw from them. Can’t make it this weekend? Don’t worry, you’ve got time: “Of Many Minds” will be in Boston through December 2023.

Get your guitar fix with Joe Satriani

Joe Satriani started playing drums at age 8, then moved on to piano it became the one he wanted to master when he was 14, shortly after learning that his hero Jimi Hendrix had died. Satriani became a specialist in the art of instrumental music, releasing a string of popular albums, and touring the world.

In ensuing years, he also played in other bands – he was the lead guitarist on Mick Jagger’s first solo tour, a temporary replacement for Richie Blackmore in Deep Purple for a Far East swing, and the guitarist in Chickenfoot – yet he never stopped writing and recording his own albums.

Classic tunes – hard rock as well as ballads – from earlier releases will be played alongside songs from his newest, this year’s “The Elephants of Mars,” on his current “Earth Tour,” which visits the Orpheum Theatre this Saturday at 7:30 p.m
