SISTER CITY ASSOCIATION
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.
LA BELLE STRASBOURGEOISE
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. For more details, see the full article.
