Sounds of Summer Nantucket on Independence Day is a sea of red, white, and blue, from flags hanging on Main Street, to festive attire for fireworks on Jetties Beach. In the spirit of the holiday, N Magazine’s cover features American flagwrapped country singer Ayla Brown, who will be performing at the Nantucket Music Festival starting August 2nd. The patriotic theme of this issue extends to our preview of the August Nantucket Cottage Hospital Pops Concert, which will feature a special performance of “The StarSpangled Banner” on its 200th anniversary.

There is no more comfortable place to call home than Nantucket on July 4th. While a home is more than bricks and mortar, more and more stunning pieces of architecture are appearing on the island, as both designers and owners become more expressive with their taste. An example is the new music school built by Wendy Schmidt, which is one of the most exciting public spaces on the island. With its stunning interior design by Kathleen Hay, and thoughtful interior utilization by architect Joe Paul of BPC Architecture, Schmidt has made an extraordinary contribution to the island with this project. The new Nantucket Community Music Center on Centre Street is a must-see for those who appreciate cutting-edge environments. Stepping outside, N Magazine interviews how-to TV legend Russell Morash, whose gardening tips and advice have helped millions of homeowners produce magical landscapes, and have led to his receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmys. As much as Nantucket is made up of beautiful buildings and spectacular homes, nothing about this island is as impressive as its people. N Magazine features a profile of long-term resident and volunteer extraordinaire Linda Williams, who is one of the unsung heroes that help keep Nantucket going. From her role as chair of the HDC, to her home life as a foster parent, to her unending list of community-based activities, Linda Williams defines citizenship. From the shores of the Atlantic to the banks of the Potomac, N Magazine profiles a true Washington power couple, David Leiter and Tamera Luzzatto, who have both served as chief-of-staff to some of America’s most influential politicians, including John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. Unlike their counterparts in the TV series, House of Cards, Leiter and Luzzatto demonstrate the kinder and gentler side of D.C. politics, and have built a reputation that defies the conventional perception of Washington as cutthroat. Closer to home, N Magazine is delighted to introduce a young star in the making: Chelsea Remick, whose walk-on audition for the Theatre Workshop’s production of Annie has set her on a trajectory toward Broadway stardom. According to her coach Cynthia Csabay, this self-possessed twelveyear-old is “the most talented young person I have ever met and whose success is not a question of if, but when.”

Music of a different type will be arriving on our shores in the form of the first annual Nantucket Music Festival, featuring three-time Grammy Award winner Bruce Hornsby. The broad range of talent will include Ben Taylor, son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, Guster, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The roster of top performers promises to build as the August 2nd and 3rd event approaches, hopefully making this festival a permanent staple of the summer season. Nantucket is truly an island of gifted people who either live, visit, or perform here, making this venue one of the most extraordinary places in America. The Fourth of July is a holiday not only to celebrate our country’s independence, but to celebrate the place we all call home. Have a wonderful Fourth.

When people say they drive a Porsche, most picture four wheels not two, but recently this leader in luxury sports cars has taken off its driving gloves to manufacture high-end bicycles. Trading spoilers for spokes, the Porsche bicycle is a styling way to cruise the ‘Sconset Loop or jump off-road and tackle the Moors. With a high-end carbon-fiber frame and 27.5-inch tires, the twenty-speed, extremely lightweight Porsche Bike has exceptional handling, DT Swiss front shocks, and Magura hydraulic-disc brakes that stop on a dime.

PLEASE PARK RESPONSIBLY The parking dispute between Cisco Brewers and Bartlett’s Farm seems to have finally reached a resolution this past month with the opening of a new two-hundred-car parking lot. Cisco purchased nearly eight acres of land from the Powers family for $4.1 million, and now customers won’t have to worry about potential ticketing along the road. Things got heated last year when Bartlett’s Farm demanded Cisco pay for the use of Bartlett’s Farm Road, where many brewery-goers parked. With this hefty land purchase, there should no longer be an issue for the popular brewery, winery, and distillery.

Leading the charge is ACKFresh, brought to the island by Brent Tartamella and Joanna Roche. “Our big picture is encouraging people to be healthy every day,” said Tartamella. “Cold-press juices are a more nutrient-dense product. Most juices start to lose nutrients almost immediately, because most are made using a centrifugal process that adds heat and promotes the breakdown.” ACKFresh has a menu of pressed juices that includes their staple A.C.G.

PATRIOTIC POPS This year’s Pops concert comes on the 200th anniversary of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” To mark the occasion, the Pops has prepared a special, multimedia presentation in honor of the anthem that will be performed for only the second time ever. The patriotic theme will continue throughout the show as Medal of Honor recipients will be recognized on stage, and the Pops will be playing an American repertoire of show tunes and ragtime. Rumor has it that the orchestra has been perfecting its take on the hit song from Disney’s Frozen, proving once again that the Pops concert truly is for all ages.

“HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE”

Flying in straight from Sweden, the world-famous ABBA tribute band ARRIVAL will be performing alongside Keith Lockhart and his hundred-piece symphony orchestra. From “Dancing Queen” to “Mama Mia,” ARRIVAL and the Pops will play some of the biggest hits of the sixties and seventies, turning Jetties Beach into a giant sing-along dance party. So if Beethoven or Bach just don’t ring your bell, perhaps ARRIVAL will have your number.

NOT A BAd SEAT IN THE HOUSE Pops co-chairs Bob and Laurie Monahan have set out to engage the entire audience at this year’s concert. They want folks dancing and singing, not just sitting back and waiting for the fireworks. One way to bring the audience into the show was by introducing LED jumbotrons to either side of this year’s stage. Throughout the night, cameramen will be scouring the audience looking for faces to flash on the big screens. Improved sound systems have also been brought in to ensure that there’s not a bad seat in the house. Above all, the Monahans have emphasized this year’s concert to be dedicated to the community, particularly focusing on the show’s beneficiary, the Nantucket Cottage Hospital, through a short movie presentation that will play on the jumbotrons.

The former Italian eatery on 29 Fair Street gets a French twist With great fanfare, celebrity chef Todd English rode into town in 2009 to open Figs at 29 Fair Street with Summer House owner Danielle deBenedictis and her husband, Peter Karlson. As English’s role began to fade into the sunset and Figs is no longer, deBenedictis has again switched horses by hiring a group of longtime Nantucket locals to return the eatery to its former French roots. If you’ve ever bought a sandwich on the strip, you’ll probably recognize the guys behind the new incarnation of the Bistro at 29 Fair Street. The brothers who run Stubbys and Walter’s on Broad Street, Dilip and Hera Maharjan, have taken over the operation of the long-standing Fair Street Inn restaurant with the help of their cousin, Nimesh Maharjan, and another familiar Nantucket culinary figure, chef Charles

The locale is familiar to Chef Salliou, who operated a restaurant at the same address from 2006 to 2008, but left Nantucket to work as a private chef. The opening of the Bistro at 29 Fair not only marks Salliou’s return to the island, but also reunites him with Nimesh Maharjan, who started as a dishwasher before working his way up to become Salliou’s co-executive chef and chef de cuisine. “Nantucket offers everything I need to work,” Salliou said. “It’s the diversity of the people, and I love bringing those people together.” A native of Brittany, France, Salliou first worked on Nantucket as the chef at the Summer House from 1988 to 1992. Now 55, he sees his return to Nantucket as a return to his childhood roots. Salliou’s summer menu includes bay scallops, smoked-duck carpaccio, and pasta-wrapped shrimp for appetizers; halibut, risotto, lamb, chicken, and gnocchi for main courses; and crème brûlée and mascarpone torte desserts, to name a few. “It’s a bit punk rock, but mostly French classical,” the chef said. “It’s minimalist, but it’s a full meal and we want there to be a wow with every bite. We source everything locally, mostly from Moors End Farm.” Complementing the menu, Tracy Root, the wine director for all the Summer House properties, said he wanted to create an accessible list that people would really enjoy: “We have a mix of French and California wines that start at a good price point and a wine menu that is very user friendly,” The Bistro at 29 Fair Street is now open for reservations.

The dramatic discovery of Nantucket’s Chelsea Remick

At the age of three, Nantucket native Chelsea Remick had already found her favorite concert venue: the Stop and Shop. From the rolling stage of her mother’s shopping cart, she would belt out songs at the top of her lungs as Kim Remick would travel the aisles for her weekly grocery run. Kim would apologize to the Stop and Shop staff for her daughter’s loud performances, but the performances grew so popular at the market that young Chelsea would receive applause at the checkout line. Jeff and Kim Remick came to Nantucket from North Carolina with the idea of staying a few years and then moving on after their children got older. Twenty years later, with Jeff’s established HVAC business and their family of three, the Remicks have come to realize how incredibly nurturing a place Nantucket is, particularly for a budding talent.

hile Chelsea always enjoyed singing, her latent skills were never formally recognized until one afternoon at the age of nine, when she auditioned for a role in the Nantucket Theatre Workshop’s performance of Annie. Just twentyfour hours before the audition date, Chelsea went up to her room, memorized the words to “Tomorrow,” and joined the long list of hopefuls looking to be a part of the Theatre Workshop’s production. After Chelsea N magazine

stood on the stage and sang her number, both artistic

58

director John Shea and the production’s director Cynthia Csabay were speechless. In fact, Csabay had tears in her eyes having realized that she was a witness to a talent that she would later term “extraordinarily gifted.”


Csaby, a professional actress and singer with Broadway and television-commercial credits to her name, recognizes talent when she sees it. As an actor, singer, and director with the Theatre Workshop, Csabay worried about finding a suitable Annie for the company’s production and feared having to go off-island to recruit the lead. “When Chelsea walked into the room, she was unassuming and we had no idea what to expect,” Csabay remembers. “When she stood on stage, all of a sudden we saw this young girl who was self-possessed, had a sparkling personality, and sung perfectly on pitch.” Csabay added, “She is one of the most extraordinarily gifted kids I have ever worked with.” Chelsea was selected to play the role of Annie, and each of the twenty-three performances were sold out as a result. So impressed was Csabay, a New York-trained Broadway singing coach for twenty-five years, she asked Chelsea’s mother if she could become her professional mentor. The two began working together to develop Chelsea’s singing and acting skills in New York, which has led her to auditions in the Broadway production of Annie, and a movie with Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. In a uniquely Nantucket turn of events, the actual writer of the play Annie, Thomas Meehan, was in the audience of Chelsea’s final performance on the island, and the two met at a party in ’Sconset. Meehan approached both Chelsea and Kim Remick, and let them both know that Chelsea possessed a rare talent that suggested she was Broadway bound. This summer Chelsea will be performing in Cinderella, and while she is commuting to New York with her coach in preparation for her next career move in August, Nantucketers will have another chance to enjoy Chelsea’s talents as she may perform in front of the seven-thousandmember audience at the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Boston Pops Concert. Kim Remick cannot express how grateful she is for the opportunities presented to her daughter in an unlikely spot thirty miles out to sea. Indeed, Nantucket has in its own way led Chelsea to the heart of New York’s performance world and put her on a trajectory that none of the Remicks would have ever imagined. Had the family not stayed on the island, it is possible that their daughter’s talents may have gone unrecognized, denying us of a future Broadway star. According to those who have seen Chelsea Remick in action, the question of her success is not a matter of if, but when. According to Kim Remick, just getting to this point means she has already succeeded. Photos by Laurie Richards courtesy of the Theatre Workshop of Nantucket

THE TIRELESS WORK OF LINDA WILLIAMS On January 20, 1961, six-year-old Linda Williams sat watching John F. Kennedy deliver his inaugural address on a television in rural Appalachia. “Ask not what your country can do for you,” the president said, “ask what you can do for your country.” The young girl was transfixed. Since hearing those words, Linda Williams has pursued a life of public service and volunteerism inspired by Kennedy’s call. Williams’s life is rich with similar historic anecdotes that shaped the woman she is today. At the age of five, she lived directly across the street from her elementary school in Montclair, New Jersey, when bussing was ordered to integrate the schools. A one-minute walk to fifth grade suddenly became a bus ride downtown, where she attended classes at a nearly all-black elementary school. “It opened my eyes,” she says. “It was one of the best experiences of my life.” A year later, Williams went to live with her mother in Memphis, where she witnessed “such poverty and such abuse of black culture.” “I was really becoming quite an activist at the age of twelve or thirteen,” she says. “And then of course we lived through the assassination of Martin Luther King and I think that just spurred on my intensity in social justice.” Williams moved back to the East Coast and began tutoring kids in tough neighborhoods in New Jersey. So began a life of tireless service that continues to this day. Linda Williams’s commitment to island causes borders on manic. She has served on a dizzying number of town committees, nonprofit boards, and agencies. She is currently the vice chairman of the Planning Board and the chairman of the HDC, the Nantucket Housing Authority, and the Nantucket Planning and Economic Development Commission, among others. She mentors children, campaigns for the disabled, and has devoted herself to causes across the spectrum, from serving as an EMT for the fire department, to being president of Big Brothers Big Sisters, to volunteering for Hospice, to coaching basketball at the Boys & Girls Club. On and on, there is no limit to N magazine

Dr. Greg Hinson is a man of many passions. As a primary-care physician, he’s delivered approximately six hundred babies on Nantucket. On the Internet, he’s a social-media sensation and a locally famous photographer. As an activist, he once mounted a grassroots campaign to prevent a major corporation from taking up residence on Nantucket—and succeeded. He’s a birder, blogger, web designer, drone pilot, and father of four. He might just be one of the most well-known Nantucket residents around, and yet since resigning from his practice at the Nantucket Cottage Hospital two years ago, most people have absolutely no idea what Dr. Greg Hinson actually does with his time.

Olympic fencer Jed Dupree challenges Nantucket to a duel this July

GuARD! WRiTTEN bY roBert cocuzzo

PHOTOGRAPHY bY Kit noBle

Flashback to March 26, 2001, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Summer resident Jed Dupree had finally made it into the NCAA fencing semifinals after three disappointing years of coming up short for the Columbia University Lions. He was facing off against Stanford’s two-time NCAA champion Felix Reichling, a German prodigy whom many considered the best fencer in the world. The underdog Dupree had fought his way back to tie the bout up at fourteen to fourteen. Next point would decide the match. In the final sequence, Reichling came out on the attack. Dupree dodged his blade, and then in a decisive moment that would change his life, he pounced and struck Reichling in the chest for the win. Dupree went on to become a NCAA Champion, a National Champion and an Olympian. As for the fate of Felix Reichling, the great German competitor never fenced again.

ome might say that Jed Dupree had a violent childhood. While most kids were sticking straws into their juice boxes come lunchtime, little Jedediah was trying to stick opponents with a steel sword. Dupree picked up the fencing blade at the age of six, and by nine years old his mother was taking him out of school every afternoon to drive two hours from their hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to a training facility in New York City. Under the tutelage of Columbia University’s head coach, Dupree was shaped into a national champion. After college, he represented the United States in the Summer Olympics, first as a competitor in Athens and later as a coach in London. Today, he coaches the Harvard Crimson fencing team, and they are at the top of the Ivy League. Dupree has been coming to Nantucket since he was a kid. Along with his brother Ethan, he owns the wine and cheese shop on Old South Wharf, Dupree & Company, as well as the newly opened underground wine bar on Broad Street, Meursault. This summer, Dupree is bringing yet another unique venture to Nantucket with an introductory fencing camp held at the Great Harbor

s a coach, Dupree is unorthodox. While some coaches stress lifting weights and strength training, Dupree devotes time to yoga and meditation. He explains that in the heat of battle, fencers are undermined by the surge of adrenaline pulsing through their bodies. By teaching his fencers how to control their breathing through yoga and meditation, he’s made them better fighters. “I saw so much attention being spent on getting kids fast and strong, without paying any attention to the mental side,” he says. “I attribute that as the reason why in three years our fencers at my club in New York City took a bigger jump than most others.” In the course of three years, Dupree coached an under-seventeen national champion, an under-twenty national champion, and a senior national champion who made the Olympic team. “He was the youngest guy to make the Olympic team that year.” Dupree coached nineteen-year-old Race Imboden at the London Olympics and considers seeing one of his pupils excel to the world stage the proudest moment of his fencing career. Here on Nantucket, Dupree hopes the island can someday serve as a stage for big fencing competitions. While there are strong fencing niches throughout the country, the sport is largely obscure and misunderstood. “I think the misperception is that it’s an upper-crust sport. People think it’s just this prep-school thing, but it’s not. It can actually get pretty down and dirty,” Dupree says. What gives fencing its air of exclusivity is that very few places offer it, as there are only so many coaches in the country. In bringing fencing to Nantucket, Dupree wonders if the next national champion will be discovered. The only

Washington poWer couple tamera luzzatto and david leiter

In the hit Netflix TV series, House of Cards, a Machiavellian politician teams up with his cold-blooded wife to create the ultimate Washington power couple—successful yet unapologetically ruthless. Far from these exaggerated television characters Francis and Claire Underwood is the real-life Washington power couple of Tamera Stanton Luzzatto and David Leiter, who call Nantucket their summer home. Both Luzzatto and Leiter had the distinction of being chief of staff to two ambitious and successful politicians in Washington: Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. Luzzatto is senior vice president at the Pew Charitable Trusts in D.C., while Leiter is an influential lobbyist at ML Strategies, a division of Boston-based Mintz Levin. Theirs is a true D.C. life replete with influential friends, a packed schedule of A-list black-tie events, and associations that go all the way up to the Oval Office. For Leiter, a native of Seekonk, Massachusetts, it all began as a volunteer in Congressman Mo Udall’s 1976 presidential campaign and then a position on President-Elect Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Transition Team. He later served as a senior aide to U.S. Senator Wendell Ford and then campaign manager and chief of staff to Rhode Island Lieutenant Governor Richard Licht, which led to a position on Senator John Kerry’s 1990 reelection campaign and ultimately to chief of staff in Kerry’s Washington Senate office. Leiter became well-known for his affable personal style and served during a time of ascending influence of Massachusetts’s then-junior senator. While distance from his former job gives him freedom of candor, Leiter’s admiration for the now secretary of state is palpable. “I have never met an individual so talented in so many facets of life, from his grasp of numerous foreign languages to his athleticism, to a level of intelligence that few can grasp,” he says. “Kerry to me is a vertically integrated human being.” N magazine

amera Luzzatto’s instincts for politics began as a government major at Harvard College, where she was the first woman elected head of the Harvard Democrats and a leader at the Institute of Politics. After graduating from Harvard, she rose up the ranks at the office of Senator Jay Rockefeller, ultimately becoming his chief of staff and a valued confidant for fifteen years. As Luzzatto’s reputation grew in Washington, she caught the attention of then-First

N magazine

Lady Hillary Clinton, who recruited her to become her chief of staff when she was elected senator of New York State.

Luzzatto became Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff when Clinton was sworn into office in early January of 2001. The senator was still the first lady until January 20, and she invited Luzzatto to join the Clintons over a final weekend at Camp David that hosted members of Congress and close friends. After learning she herself could bring a guest, Luzzatto thought of David Leiter, whom she had reconnected with at a recent Capitol Hill holiday party. As fate would have it, this trip to Camp David would be the couple’s first real date. Four months later, Leiter proposed to Luzzatto on the shores of a beach in Tom Nevers. Life has had its interruptions for Leiter and Luzzatto, including Luzzatto overcoming two brain-tumor operations, from which she has fully recovered. Just eleven days before their wedding in 2001, the September 11th attacks occurred, throwing them yet another curveball. New York was still in a state of shock from the attack, and after wrestling with the decision on whether to postpone their wedding, they both agreed that the best way to respond to the terrorist attacks was to show that life goes on. After the ceremony at the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, in a display of proud defiance, guest Hillary Clinton spontaneously decided to lead all the wedding guests on a walk down 5th Avenue to the reception. While Clinton’s actions a powerful statement to all the guests and to New York City.

hen walking through their house in the shadow of the National Cathedral, one quickly notices photographs of the couple with Washington’s power elite. Many of their friends are household names and provide witness to the pair’s mastery of the art of maneuvering around the circles of influence on Capitol Hill. According to Ambassador Elizabeth Bagley, who has known the couple for many years, “Washington can be a cutthroat place; however both are known as consummate professionals, caring and giving people who go out of their way to help others.” When asked about the common perception of Washington lobbyists as less than saintly, Leiter replies, “It’s like any other profession; there are those with whom you would trust with your children and there are those who you would not want your children to meet.” Leiter acknowledges, “Washington is clearly a company town, and ambition is its stock-in-trade.” He admits that while the caricature of the proverbial backroom where secret and often questionable deals are made in a culture riddled with self-interest and dishonesty are an exaggeration—Washington is not for the faint of heart. Leiter has differentiated himself by being honorable and forthright. Luzzatto shares a similar perspective that while there are people and events that occur in Washington that give it a bad name, there is also much virtue in our nation’s capital that seldom grabs splashy headlines. She talks glowingly of both Hillary Clinton and Jay Rockefeller, and as the daughter of a Presbyterian minister she says, “It has always been important to me to serve those whose values I share.” Luzzatto shares the story of how Clinton would show up unannounced in her hospital room when she was recovering from her surgery and demonstrated a level of compassion that she will never forget. In turn, Luzzatto’s loyalty to Clinton is clear. “You learn a lot about a person by how they act when the cameras are not rolling,” Luzzatto says. “Mrs. Clinton, she is as

real and wonderful as it gets.”

In a town often viewed as dirty as the Potomac itself, the duo of David Leiter and Tamera Luzzatto has proven that Washington indeed has its bright lights. Francis and Claire Underwood would be so disappointed.

blues to bluegrass, gospel rock to folk. He’s jammed out with all the greats: Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Sting, Elton John, Eric Clapton, the Grateful Dead— even the late rap legend Tupac Shakur. Yet amidst it all, Hornsby is probably known best for his solo act—just him and a piano, jamming away his number-one hit, “The Way It Is.” Hornsby’s performances are one-of-a-kind, packed with piano improvisations and new twists on old classics. With the Grey Lady as his muse on Sunday, August 2nd, one can only wonder what Hornsby will create when he steps on to the main stage to close out the Music Festival at 8:15.

However before she even stepped onto the court for the BC Eagles, Brown found her stroke as a country musician. She made it to the semifinals on American Idol and recorded her first in-studio album entitled Forward. Then came a full athletic scholarship to BC where she played four years of NCAA Division I basketball and earned the nickname “Downtown Ayla Brown” for draining three-pointers. After college, Brown packed up her car and headed to Nashville to pursue her dream to become a country singer. She’s since performed at venues around the world, including a twoweek tour in Afghanistan singing for the troops.

From the U.K., they went on to win a Grammy in 1988 and have played a pivotal role in popularizing roots reggae music throughout the world. Just ask Bill Clinton, who invited Steel Pulse to play at his inauguration party in 1993—the first time a reggae band ever played for a POTUS.

TED ACK M e e t S

WRiTTEN bY Daniel Honan

the nantucket Project taPS ted founder richard Saul WurMan for thiS SePteMBer’S Meeting of the MindS

years ago, they did so in the shadow of TED, the hugely popular conference that has been around for thirty years. “I didn’t want to do just some version of TED on Nantucket,” Tom Scott says. “I wanted to make this an event that people on the East Coast simply couldn’t miss.” And so he experimented. Each year’s conference drew bigger and bigger names across the spectrum—inventors, philanthropists, financiers, politicians, poets. The Nantucket Project is emerging as a world-class intellectual conference in its own right. But now in a bold move, Tom Scott has enlisted the help of the very man he set out to distance his conference from: TED’s legendary founder, Richard Saul Wurman. To understand what Wurman will bring to this year’s Nantucket Project, we need to go back to the year 1984, when he founded TED. Wurman built the conference around the observation that a powerful convergence was happening in the fields of technology, entertainment, and design, thus the name TED. It was the same year that Steve Jobs unveiled the Macintosh and Sony came out with shiny new discs, even though no one even had a CD player yet. Wurman quickly grasped the significance of these breakthroughs, and trotted out the first Macs and CDs onstage at the original TED conference. Wurman’s conference sought to understand how developments in design and entertainment could help people utilize all of the newfound computing power in a way that actually made them more human—not less. Wurman went on to make TED a global phenomenon, he says, by addition through subtraction. He basically threw away all of the things he hated about conferences—reserved seating, dress codes, panels, and people “selling” from the stage. Wurman also did away with lecterns. As he is fond of pointing out, all lecterns do is “cover the groin area and make the speaker feel less vulnerable.” Along with jettisoning the lecterns, he effectively cians. And doom and gloom. And it worked. TED Talks, as Wurman’s radically pareddown speaker format came to be known, have been viewed online over two billion times.

did away with canned speeches. And politi-

107


espite the conference’s undeniable success, Wurman would bristle at the notion that he is Mr. TED. He sold TED in 2002 and wishes he had parted with it sooner. “I feel like if I have done something, why do it again?” he says. “Just making a modest improvement on something is not as satisfying as creating something new.” Wurman’s restless curiosity led him to produce over forty different events. He sees all of them as “an elaborate hobby,” along with his eighty-three books that cover a dizzying array of subjects, from sports to health care to finance. While it may be just a hobby, Wurman’s work has spawned an entire field of study called “information architecture,” a term he coined. So what about Wurman’s latest hobby, the Nantucket Project? Wurman will be speaking at the event in September and has also signed on as a member of the advisory board. His influence is already being felt, as Scott and his team are looking to adapt a N magazine

Transforming big data into big understanding: Cities are represented by enormous amounts of data, all of which is collected in different ways.

ne of the creative additions to the Nantucket Project this year is TNP Labs, a production and innovation laboratory. BMW and art-world impresario Renee Harbers Liddell have both partnered with TNP Labs to produce a groundbreaking film series for the Project. In addition to a slate of inhouse productions, TNP Labs and its partners are bringing six cutting-edge filmmakers to the island to create short films inspired by presentations at the event. “We see our place in the world as storytellers,” says Scott, “but more specifically, we are concerned with how to tell the modern story.” How can we separate what is truly important from all of the noise in our world today? To answer this question, Scott is looking to Wurman for guidance. And that is also why—not coincidentally—Wurman is the subject of one of TNP Lab’s first films, to premiere Sep-

This home on 11 Union Street dates back to 1802, when it was built and owned by a local baker named Nathan Beebe. Aside from removal of its nineteenth century chimney, this old house retains most of its original architectural elements from its original wood flooring to its Victorian-style front door. Today, builder Justin Quinn and architects Ethan McMorrow and Ted Burnham have teamed up to give 11 Union a complete new-meets-old renovation. Scheduled completion is spring 2015.

Built in the 1880s, this carriage house in town has evolved over the years from serving as the Sea Cliff Hotel’s horse stable, to Irvin Wyer’s private barn, to the Holiday Cycle bike rental shop in the 1950s. The barn’s most recent transformation came courtesy of Cottage & Castle builders and BPC architects, who teamed up to restore its historic exterior while completely modernizing the interior. The result is not your average horse stable.

f ever there were a music school that made you want to break out in song, this is it. After three years of planning and construction, the new Nantucket Community Music Center at 56 Center Street is simply exhilarating. Belying its traditional Federal-style façade, built in 1843 by whale oil merchant Harrison Gray Otis Dunham, the interior achieves perfect harmony in the use of colors, textures, and lighting. Conceived by Wendy Schmidt, with an interior design by Kathleen Hay and Joe Paul of BPC Architecture, this is not your father’s music school. The space was designed as much to inspire as it is to teach, and succeeds on so many levels that it is hard to single out a specific highlight of the building. The graceful central staircase, which was preserved through the devastating fire that nearly totally destroyed the structure last year, is set against a medley of soft hues of golden yellows, creamy whites, and light browns. Contrasting the traditional elements of crown moldings and a period fireplace, the space is filled with contemporary accents from Hay’s signature light fixtures, to Lucite framed audience chairs in a recital room featuring a baby grand piano. On the second floor, it is clear that Schmidt was not afraid to push the envelope. The school features a library with a striking, highgloss orange wall and trim paint, which on paper may have seemed out of place, but within the context of the space adds a perfect note. The teaching studios off the main hallway feature porthole windows that provide visitors a playful opportunity to watch students performing without compromising

The

Auctioneer Written by VaneSSa eMerY

PhotograPhy by KaTie KaiZer

Over thirty years in business, Rafael Osona Auctions are anything but old.

Most would say a sunset on Nantucket is priceless, but if you ask Rafael Osona, it’s worth $17,000. Alongside his wife Gail, Osona is the fast-talking, third-generation antiquarian of Nantucket’s only auction house on 21 Washington Street. Over the past thirty-three years, he’s traded well over 180,000 items, ranging from a whaling captain’s walking stick that sold for over $71,000 to a Nantucket basket that fetched a handsome $115,000. Osona has also used his auctioneering skills to raise millions for local nonprofits, sometimes auctioning off items that you’d never expect to find for sale. Ten years ago, he raised $17,000 for Hospice on Nantucket by selling a sunset at Galley beach. Working the crowd, he then sold a lock of his hair. It went for five grand.


hen Osona mounts his auction stage every summer, bidders call in from as far as London and Hong Kong to get in on the action. More than half of the items the Osonas sell have been acquired onisland, thus keeping some of the most interesting and valuable heirlooms circulating within the Nantucket community. A set of table and chairs once belonging to the Kennedys, for instance, is used every day by a local family, while chairs from ships in the Boston Tea Party were sold to the Whaling Museum. The Osonas travel coast to coast in search of 18thto 20th-century art and antiques that will keep connoisseurs from around the world bidding year after year. Each of his sales has a tale behind it. He recalls the story of the “cigar-store Indian” from Ohio. The proprietor of the smoke shop talked him and Gail into auctioning off his “cigarstore Indian,” the signature wooden carving of a Native American in full headdress that welcomed tobacco buyers in the 18th and 19th centuries. “The owner was ill and she needed money,” Osona remembers. “For the next three days, we carried this Indian on our backs from the rental car in and out of the hotel room because we didn’t want it to get stolen. It looked like we were carrying a dead body.” Osona sold the Indian for over $50,000 and “made the storeowner’s life.” A similar story belongs to Rebecca Davidson Packer, an English professor at NYU who inherited her aunt’s island home and two-bedroom apartment in New York City in 2011. The apartment was brimming with antiques: silver trays, tortoiseshell boxes, Paul Revere silver, brass candlesticks, and at least eight hundred pieces of blue and white china. “There were silver platters piled on the beds,” Packer says, “imported chinaware piled in the closet and stuffed into the bookcases, all covered in dust. My aunt was a bit of a hoarder and that is how I came to rely on Rafael.” Osona put his antiquarian eye to work, cataloging the myriad of items with auctioneer efficiency. “He’s like Antiques Roadshow on steroids,” Packer laughs. When the last gavel came slamming down, Osona had sold the entire collection, allowing Packer to not only buy her aunt’s house on Nantucket, but also to fully renovate it.


ven for a man who can sell a sunset for the price of a car, there are some items that Osona simply can’t sell on Nantucket. He’s passed up at least two shrunken heads that rolled across his desk, which he says some collectors elsewhere will pay upwards of $50,000 for. He also owns an old prison-issue straightjacket that he can’t find the right fit for amongst his usual clientele. In recent years, Osona has seen a dramatic change in taste and acquisitions, which he sums up as less is more. “Before, there were six 18thcentury chests of drawers in a typical house, now there are only one or two,” he says. “It doesn’t have to be an antique lamp on an antique dresser on an antique rug anymore. Now there might be an acrylic lamp on the same chest.” He chuckles, “Antiques can be a little busy.”


Many of Osona’s auction guests come just for the experience, citing his ease of entertaining the audience and working the crowd. When Osona worked at the William Doyle auction house in New York City, he would sell 130 to 140 items per hour, but on Nantucket he elects to sell only sixty per hour. “I do a thirtysecond spiel and we joke around, we laugh,” he says. Osona is a third-generation antiquarian. His father was a museum conservator of Old Master paintings, while his grandfather was a connoisseur of antiques and art in Spain and then Argentina. Now as his two boys, Rafael and Erin, enter the family business, it looks like Osona’s auctions will never be just a thing of the past. You can bid on it.

For Dr. and Mrs.Yue,working with Cape Cod Five on Nantucket for their mortgage made all the difference. James and Susan Yue found the ideal summer home on Nantucket for their family. They had started with a national bank for their jumbo mortgage, but their dissatisfaction with the lack of service led them to Cape Cod Five.

“People have always respected what public television has done,” Morash says. “We made a difference and I’m happy about the difference that we made.” Morash proudly displays an old photo snapped at the former parking lot at WGBH. His eyes are smiling. The photo is of the first garden he planted and filmed for The Victory Garden back in 1975. Morash and his show soon left that lot, and took his faithful viewers around the globe. From Holland to France to Australia and beyond, Morash documented and shared the world’s finest gardens through a seasoned eye. Today, this same seasoned eye is showing me around his home garden on Nantucket. As we pass through a deer fence he recently crafted together using bamboo reeds, there’s no question Morash is still the master of how-to.

ers. The viewer could care less about a picture of Martha. They want to see the plant. That mistake is made again, again, and again in programs that emulate ours. Go beyond the face—it’s not about the face.

N MagaziNe: Tell me, what have you copied from the world’s finest gardens?

Morash: I use a lot of white in the garden. You see, white is a universal color. It blends well with everything, and marries well with the blue of the sky. White leads the eye, allowing it to travel. Yellow and gold are difficult. They make a full-stop statement.

N MagaziNe: What are you planting this July?

Morash: Seed potatoes, red gold in particular. Another good one is Bintje, a Dutch heirloom.

N MagaziNe: Are they really that much better than store-bought? Morash: Like night and day! And they’re easy. Children love to dig them. I start them in July and harvest them all the way through November. There’s nothing like potatoes and eggs.

N MagaziNe: How about tomatoes—any favorites? Morash: For cherry tomatoes, I’d say Sun Gold. They ripen early, which is nice. I don’t love heirloom varieties because they are low-yield. Celebrity is the perfect size. It’s disease-free and delicious. It’s also determinate, which means it stops growing at about five feet tall. That means it can be grown in a container if you don’t have a garden. Jet Star comes in second to Celebrity. And Big Boy is pretty good, too.

N MagaziNe: What about flower beds—any tips? Morash: I’m a big fan of raised beds. First of all, it gets you closer to the material. The other thing it does is dry out the soil, which is useful because we can control the water but we can’t control the sun. So at some point you want to dry out the soil.

N MagaziNe: What do you recommend for combatting Nantucket’s sandy soil? Morash: I recommend you go to the dump and get some of the compost that they virtually give away for a small fee. That stuff is fantastic. It doesn’t have any particular nutrients in it, but what it does is binds the soil together, and it’s pretty much weed-free. It’s a neutral thing that helps improve the texture of the soil. You add the nutrients with fertilizers. The key ingredient to a good garden is the right soil.

N MagaziNe: What are you harvesting this July? Morash: Sugar snap peas, naturally. You know, like peas and salmon on the Fourth? Delicious.

N MagaziNe: What graces the Morash home vases in July? Morash: Most definitely large, white Casablanca lilies. They are glorious flowers. Excareful to replace the ones you cut, because they won’t bloom the following year. Another flower we love is the peacock lily. It’s inexpensive and beautiful. Remember, you are talking to an old Yankee here.

a Few Favorites For Another summer is in full swing and with this sunshine season comes hundreds of ways to make the most of every day on the beautiful island of Nantucket. And if you’re lucky enough to be here for the Fourth of July, then you really know how much fun there is to be had! Here’s a taste of some hip and fresh ways to celebrate ACK and America on the 02554.

sun

For the -days: When it comes to skincare, FOLLAIN has you covered. This new store on 9 South Beach Street is filled with good-foryou beauty products, from soaps to lip gloss to nail polish and more. Check out their selection of sunscreens while you’re there. I’m digging the zinc sunscreen, which unlike most other zinc sun blocks, actually goes on clear when you apply it. Great for the busy lifeguards out at the beaches from Surfside to ‘Sconset.

art thou proud: Let your chil- stars and stripes: Local screen dren get creative and explore the printer Domenica Rohrborn of Grey island while they’re at it. New to Nantucket is Mer’s Anchored Artists, where Meredith Hanson lets the kiddies have fun and get artsy with a day away at her kids camp. With great energy and mega talent, Meredith takes your kids on field trips to paint picturesque places like the American flag on Brant Point! They will come home with their finished canvases and loads to chat about. Check out meredithhansonart. com to learn more.

you say festive?: Looking for a good way to pACK your brews for the beach? We’re digging the cans from Cisco Brewers! Get into the red, white and blue spirit and buy their Sankaty Lights, Indie Pale Ales and Whale’s Tales. They look cool and taste even better! Pick up your twelve-pack at Epernay on 1 North Beach Street as you head out to celebrate the 4th out at Eel Point.

Clothing Co. has two things in mind when she makes Nantucket tee shirts: They have to be super soft and perfect to wear all year. That’s why I’m crazy about her “4th of July Nantucket Baseball Tee” which has stars on the sleeves and has “Nantucket” on the front. (And yes, it’s so cozy you’ll wanna sleep in it too!) Head over to her Facebook page and learn how to buy them online.

coordinated

Perfectly : I’m always searching for fresh ways to wear my Nantucket…and the new “coordinates” bracelets from Blue Beetle is a sweet and subtle way to sport your ACK. With the Nantucket longitude and latitude coordinates on this bangle, it looks great alone or stACKed with other bracelets. Grab yours at 12 Main Street on your way to watch the Fourth of July festivities on the cobblestones. BONUS: They come in gold, antique gold or silver!
