BOSTON/STRASBOURG

SISTER CITY ASSOCIATION

AT A GLANCE

Welcome to the official website of the Boston/Strasbourg Sister City Association (BSSCA). We have fostered the relationship between the sister cities of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and Strasbourg, Alsace, France for 60 years! Boston and Strasbourg began their association in 1960 thanks to the inspiration of Strasbourg native, Charles Munch, then conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

 

The BSSCA has entertained Strasbourg mayors, sponsored numerous student exchanges, sent Bostonians to the European Parliament, scientists to French laboratories, business students on internships, and enabled bakers, firemen, community gardeners, artists, and musicians to visit their sister city.

We welcome all people who are interested in fostering this relationship to become members of our organization. Please click here to complete our New Member Application and start enjoying the benefits of membership.

BSSCA 60th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

As part of its 60th anniversary, the BSSCA sponsored an international art project called Art on Science: 26 études. For more information, see the article below and a link to the auction of some of the pieces. The exhibit will be on display in Strasbourg at Librarie Kléber through October 30, 2020. The above article ran in last week's DNA, the local Strasbourg newspaper.

Boston/Strasbourg's own Marie Maurer took the top prize in Club Innovation et Culture France's recent national competition reinterpreting works from French art collections. A retired teacher living in Strasbourg and long-term member of the BSSCA, Marie reinterpreted La Belle Strasbourgeoise, an 18th century iconic painting by Nicolas de Largillière.

Dear friends of Boston/Strasbourg,

 

It is a pleasure to announce that our Annual Members’ Business Meeting will take place at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, June 21 at Brasserie Restaurant on Harrison Avenue. You will receive an invitation and registration form next week.

 

This is also the time of the year for membership renewal; our next fiscal year begins on July 1, 2022 and ends on June 30, 2023. Your membership dues during the last two years have been important to our operations and a welcome gesture of faith in the value of our cultural programs. I hope that you will continue to support our sister city activities as we look forward to another year of fellowship and enrichment.

 

A bientôt, j’espère.

Mary Louise
