Conversation: In the Neighborhood: A Celebration of Allan Rohan Crite

Jackie Cox-Crite in conversation with Cristela Guerra

Join Jackie Cox-Crite and WBUR’s Cristela Guerra to discuss the life and work of artist-reporter Allan Rohan Crite (1910-2007) and the extraordinary collection of personal work that he donated to the Boston Athenæum. Additionally, Ms. Cox-Crite will share stories of her husband’s artistic process and her efforts to sustain and grow his legacy through local projects and national initiatives.

Jackie Cox-Crite is the Director of the Allan Rohan Crite Research Institute and co-founder of Crite House Museum, which is based in the couple’s home in Boston’s South End. She is dedicated to the continued preservation of her husband’s legacy, which involved tracking down and properly cataloguing the artworks dispersed across numerous museums and collections.

Cristela Guerra is an arts and culture reporter for The ARTery. She worked for nearly four years at The Boston Globe writing human-interest features, covering everything from blizzards to arts to immigration as well as breaking news around New England. She started her career in Florida logging seven years at The News-Press where she wrote about Cape Coral City Hall, crime, education, LGBTQ issues and business. She's driven to understand peoples' passions, committed to local communities and hopes to use the arts as a lens to delve deeper into stories of equity, culture, social justice and race.
