FPAC Presents MBTA Integrated Art & Objects Screening

MBTA Green Line Extension Integrated Public Art / Seven GLX Stations
Opening ReceptionThursday, June 9th  |  5:00pm –7:30pm
Location: FPAC Gallery, 300 Summer Street
Curator: Christine Vaillancourt

FPAC invites you to the opening reception for the MBTA Green Line
Extension Public Artists Exhibition at the FPAC Gallery!  The event 
will start at 5pm and end at 7:30pm. Refreshments will also be served
and alcohol for those who are of age. Though this is a free event,
registration is encouraged.

In 2014, the MBTA began selection of artists to create public art for
seven new stations for the Green Line Extension (GLX) through Cambridge,
Somerville, and Medford. The selection committee was comprised of the
Arts Councils of Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, and MBTA and GLX architects.

The MBTA’s GLX Integral Art Program incorporated art into the design rather
than add-ons or afterthoughts. The intent was to humanize the environment
and uniqueness of each station experienced by the ridership and the various
communities. Various concepts and final works are presented with some
of the artists juxtaposing work not related to the stations. 

OBJECTS Private Screening & Discussion

Film Screening: Thursday, June 9th  |  7:00pm – 9:00pm

Location: Assemblage, 70 Sleeper Street

Director: Vincent Liota


"An Object's Promise" and FPAC invite you to a private screening of
"OBJECTS," an endearing, entertaining, and existential film about the
secret lives of the special objects that preserve memories, conjure
experiences, and create meaning in our lives. Followed by a discussion
with director, Vincent Liota.

The screening is part of the exhibition "An Object’s Promise", a
playful and poignant maximalist intervention that raises
consciousness about our possessions and intentions.
