Cambridge, MA – – Twenty 20, one of the first residential properties in Cambridge’s new Northpoint neighborhood, recently announced a partnership with the Cambridge Arts Council (Cambridge Arts) to bring a new local art gallery installation to the property.
The installation was completed in early September, and sits adjacent to other property graphics wrapped around the
building’s first floor retail location, which is currently available to lease. The installation features unique pieces from local Cambridge artists, including Melinda Cross, Rachel D’Erminio, Tamar Etingen, Yuri Hayano, and Shin Maeng & Sarah Shin of ‘Shin Happens’.
“We are excited to partner with the Cambridge Arts Council to showcase the amazing work of community artists on-site here at Twenty 20,” said Christina Fantone, General Manager. “Twenty 20 strives to provide its residents with an authentic Cambridge experience, both inside the property and out. This art installation will greet our guests with a warm and vibrant collection of local artwork created by our neighbors, and provide yet another unique benefit to our residents.”
Established in 1974, Cambridge Arts is one of the oldest and most dynamic arts agencies in the country. It funds, promotes, and presents high-quality, community-based arts programming for the benefit of artists, residents, and visitors to Cambridge. One of the group’s biggest initiatives is to introduce residents to local artists through open studios, such as the installation at Twenty 20, to spark innovative collaboration.
“The Cambridge Arts Council is committed to promoting and sharing the many diverse and vibrant collections of art from all around the Cambridge community,” said Julie Barry, Director of Community Arts at Cambridge Arts. “As one of the newest members of the city, Twenty|20 represents a tremendous location to display art related projects, as well as an opportunity for us to introduce Cambridge Arts to new residents of Cambridge. We are confident that this art installation
will provide high-quality aesthetics for the property and its residents, while also providing excellent exposure for the participating Cambridge-based artists.
