Andalusia Blog: Nature!

Andalusia Blog: Nature!

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.- Tennessee Williams

I used to work in downtown Boston, all bricks, stone, concrete and glass. The view out my 7th floor office window was more bricks, stone, concrete and glass, and yes a bridge and the sky and if I craned my neck...Boston Harbor. What seemed like the same old starlings hung out on the fire escape just outside my window. One day I looked out at the very moment a hawk flew down and grabbed a bird and in a flurry of feet and feathers, off they went, bird and prey. This scene of course happens daily but the urban setting somehow drew a big line for me around 'nature' as opposed to man's constructed city. It was a poetic reminder that nature is surprising and beautiful and strong and trumps anything we might fancy as solid or permanent... Read More

Chick-fil-A wings in new direction

Chick-fil-A wings in new direction

Bruce Horovitz, USA TODAY

ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A is finally crossing the road.

The iconic chicken chain, as well-known for its conservative heritage as its savory eats, is recalibrating its moral and culinary compass. It wants to go from old school to almost cool. It wants to evolve from a place where gays once picketed to a place where they'll feel comfortable going to eat. It wants to broaden the brand as it expands nationally and plows into the Millennial-driven urban arena. Above all: it wants to be a serious player on fast-food's biggest stage.

“Accepting oneself does not preclude an attempt to become better.”
Flannery O'Connor

As Andalusia enters organizational adolescence, it is a good time to take stock of whence we were born, where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. The Andalusia Foundation was established in 2001 and the property was opened to the public shortly thereafter. At 13 years old, our coming of age story, or bildungsroman as it is known in literary criticism, can be seen as a tale of vision and hard work and the support of so many individuals, foundations and government funders.

To help us in our rite of passage, we are fortunate to have been awarded a MAP grant. MAP is an acronym for Museum Assessment Program and is supported through a cooperative agreement between the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the American Alliance of Museums... Read More
