Located at 101 Rogers Street, The Foundry is a 52,000 square foot building that was once a pump manufacturing facility, a motor freight station, and an aircraft parts factory among other things. Donated to the City of Cambridge nearly two years ago, the building has remained empty since. Due to growing worries about the building, the city is finally taking a good look at what would be the best use for the space. While 10,000 sq. ft. has already been designated as "community space" there is still a bit of uncertainty about what to do with the rest of the space.
Here's where we come in! The city has granted permission to hold a one day event in the space -- hoping to show off how creatively it can be used. Thankfully, even with short notice, the great minds at FLUX Boston, Opus Affair, Voltage Coffee & Art, and Yes.Oui.Si have banded together over the past week to organize what is sure to be a wonderful event! The art initiative and open house will feature a range of local creatives including artists, musicians, galleries, and numerous other art related organizations.
