A Community Reflects: Ice Cream Party + Photobooth!

Ice Cream Party + Photobooth! Join us for playful outdoor arts activities and an interactive photobooth. Many of the portraits will be included in the artwork!

For this program series, artist Silvia Lopez Chavez is teaming up with MIT to create temporary public art along Main Street in Kendall Square. With the help of local neighbors and friends, Silvia will create street-level art that incorporates stories, reflections, hardships and hopes of the past year in color, portraits, patterns, and words sourced from community contributions. Be sure to check out our other programs in this series on 9/11, 10/16, and 10/27.
