Stories by Agassiz Baldwin

We begin with a Rand McNally World Atlas. A copper tube twists over, around and through the book, with numerous severed ends poking up through the cover. Like this sculpture, “Maps of Future Pipelines” by Steven Muller, the pieces in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming “Small Works Salon 2018” encompass, pierce and skewer maps and map-making. Juror Heidi Whitman, an artist and the teacher of “Mapping: Painting and Drawing” at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, has chosen works that repurpose maps to address concerns beyond physical geography.

One could argue that the way a story is told can be just as important as the story itself. Exploring those nuances is exactly what local artist Bill Porter intends for his new show “Impart.” In this collection, Porter will construct a stunning narrative between contrasting visuals that expresses themes of heritage, identity and the mysteries of life as seen through a child’s eyes.

Agassiz Baldwin Community hosts the annual Hip Hop Festival every February school vacation week.  Billed as “an age-appropriate performance of a style of music children love” and “a great way for students from across Cambridge to interact [and] a networking opportunity for young performers,” the Agassiz Baldwin Community Hip Hop Festival is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!

The Annual Thanksgiving Potluck Feast is where old friends and new neighbors meet and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. Agassiz Baldwin Community supplies the turkey (cooked by volunteers), cranberry sauce, and drinks, while our guests bring salads, sides, and desserts inspired by their own family traditions. Hosted in the Maria L. Baldwin School cafeteria, this neighborhood tradition held on the Tuesday before the Thanksgiving holiday has continued for nearly fifty years!



The Spirit Awards event celebrates the spirit of Maud Morgan, a former community resident and artist of exceptional vibrancy, who lived her life deeply in the arts, in her neighborhood and in the world (1903-1999). Once a year we gather for a festive evening to honor an outstanding individual who embodies her “spirit”.

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. Postcards are the chosen medium in the Chandler Gallery’s latest exhibition, which asks artists to put forth some of their most daring work within the confines of 6×8 inches.


Join us for a casual spring evening of hors d’oeuvres, music, and conversation to celebrate the Living Well Network community, a grassroots resource for adults over 55. Meet the new Living Well Network Coordinator Diane Martin!
