A Home for the Arts At A Time of Need

The phoenix rising is the theme of CCCA’s partnership with BioMed Realty, where the focus has been to support artists and organizations that had recently lost their space with the closure of Green Street Studios, the elimination of public dance rehearsal space at MIT, and the closure of Ryles Jazz Club. It is in that vein that Executive Artistic Director, Dan Marshall, created this special 2-month Winter session, to feature mostly artists who lost their spaces.
