CAF Collective is a new project in 2017. Four Cambridge artists have been collaborating since March to create the interactive installation called “Picture Your City”. With a Cambridge theme, Picture Your City is a life size wooden book depicting some familiar Cambridge locations through photography.
Festival goers help to create the book through an interactive print making workshop, adding their prints to the book throughout the day. The last two pages of the book lets participants interact with a giant magnetic story board, creating in words, their vision of Cambridge.
Look for the installation on Dickson Street in front of Phidon Pens.
Directly behind the installation, collective members will show their individual works in a pop-up gallery for the month of July at 63 Dickson St. The pop up gallery will open on Tuesday, July 4.
A Cambridge Arts Festival preview night will be held on Friday, July 7 from 6-11 pm as part of Galt Love and will feature CAF Collective works, silent auction items (with works and merchandise from our exhibiting artists,vendors, and sponsors), live acoustic music, beer, wine, and appys.
CAF Collective is funded by the Cambridge Arts Festival and Arts Connect Cambridge.
