Mayor Simmons Proclaims August 26 Women’s Equality Day in Cambridge

Honors the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote

“Women won the right to vote almost one century ago, and it was a hard-fought victory that only came about due to generations of women activists who refused to accept the status quo of being second-class citizens,” said Mayor E. Denise Simmons. “Yet 97 years after that milestone, we must recognize that there is still so much work to be done in ensuring that women are given the same status, the same respect, and the same opportunities as men in this country.

Small Works Capture Big Messages

Postcards to Maud at Chandler Gallery through September 7

"Postcards to Maud" is an engaging exhibition and fundraiser for the Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center on Sacramento Street. The premise of the show is that each artist created a 6" by 8" postcard for Maud Morgan, as if they were sending postcards to abstract expressionist and neighborhood resident Maud Morgan (1903-1999).

Second in a series of soundwalks in different neighborhoods in our fair city

Big Works in Small Spaces at the Chandler Gallery

Where you’d typically see the big, bold letters of “Greetings From…” or an endearing “Wish You Were Here,” there are stunning oil still lifes, surreal portraits or a textural collage made entirely of green circles.

Summer of Hell

The Rebuilding of Wellington-Harrington

I made the mistake of googling my opening line “everything happens at once,” and became completely distracted with the physicists' theory that “The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening

Vally D is a Comedian

I haven’t seen the most comedy of anyone ever, but I have seen a lot. I’m a tough audience and that is not because my standards are too high, but more a reflection of America’s descent into mediocrity. That being said, I consider Standup Comedy to be one of the hardest art forms out there.
