RE-RESCHEDULED to 2-26: First Chance To See Public Art Proposals!

The snow date of Feb 20 conflicted with another important East Cambridge event. The 26th is the final date - please also note the new location.

Come to the rescheduled community meeting to see public art proposals for the Foundry:

Tuesday, February 26th from 6 to 8 p.m.

Cambridge Police Department, 125 Sixth Street, Cambridge.

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.

Two days after this meeting 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. Learn more about this project at the the Cambridge Arts Council Foundry page.
