The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum celebrated the longest night of the year (Dec. 21), with a solstice-themed Third Thursdays party. The Transformative Culture Project, based in Roxbury, worked with the Gardner on the night of programming, which featured George Russell III and Tim Hall playing music in the courtyard, and actor-writer-comedian Obehi Janice treating an audience to an excerpt of her solo show “FUFU & OREOS.”
