Gallery with the Best Record of Getting Its Art into Local Museums | Bernard Toale Gallery: Sara Walker at the Rose, Laura McPhee at the MFA, Greg Mencoff in a group show at the Fitchburg Art Museum, etc. Best Unofficial Art Pretending To Be Official | Matthew Hicman’s charmingly unwelcoming guerrilla art bench at Jamaica Pond. Best Art Event | The drawings by Palestinian children that were kicked out of Brandeis and then rehung at MIT’s Stata Center.
