First Chance To See Public Art Proposals! Feb 12th 6 pm at Senior Center


Come to a community meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Cambridge Citywide Senior Center, 806 Massachusetts Ave.


The three finalists for the Foundry public art project—Elisa Hamilton, Innovators for Purpose and Masary Studios—will present their proposals. Then there will be a break-out session allowing members of the public to speak with the artists, review sketches of their designs, ask questions and give feedback.


On Feb. 28, the selection committee will make the final selection of the artist or artist team to create a public artwork to be installed at the Foundry for everyone to enjoy.


The public art project is funded by the City of Cambridge's Percent-for-Art ordinance, which requires that 1 percent of the construction costs on municipal capital investment projects be designated for use in developing site-responsive public artwork.
