On June 4 from 11am-6pm, Cambridge Arts will welcome 150,000 plus festival goers to the East Cambridge waterfront for an exuberant celebration of the arts.

In 2008 Laura Evans created a pair of companion art benches for the Greene-Rose Heritage Park in the Area IV neighborhood (“The Port”). Entitled “Conductivity”, the sculpture is based on a typical park bench that the City usually selects from a catalogue but which has been altered by the artist. Cambridge Arts is pleased to present a selection of Laura’s studio work that sets “Conductivity” in the context of her ongoing artistic explorations.

Alyssa O’Toole brings “Hands,” a nationwide movement to make musical learning accessible to all, to the heart of Central Square Cultural District on Saturday, July 18th from 12-5pm. “Hands” offers a unique opportunity for individuals of all ages, skill levels, and walks of life to come together and learn to play the piano. Participants will be taught to play a portion of an original song and filmed as they perform it. The resulting video will capture the many hands of the performers coming together to make one song.
