Cambridge YMCA, 820 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139

Boston's only omni-genre variety show stitched into a theatrical six-ring circus, CHEAP SEATS features short sets from local luminaries and new comers alike as dozens of musicians, poets, comedians, dancers, visual & conceptual artists converge on Central Square for a rapid-fire round robin all over the Y Theater's stage, floor, balconies and chandeliers. With an emphasis on reckless originality, CHEAP SEATS is the place to see veteran artists stretch their chops and be blown away by something completely unheard of. Always all ages and wheelchair accessible, this is an open source salon for the radically inclusive and artistically adventurous. Sign up to perform in advance, or just show up at will call with a guitar or a projector or a puppet or something and watch what happens…

Cold Hollow Sculpture Park 4280 Boston Post Road, Enosburg Falls, VT 05450
Cold Hollow Sculpture Park's Inaugural Season and Opening Celebration

Please join us as we open the gate to Cold Hollow Sculpture Park for the first time! Starting in the summer of 2014 Cold Hollow Sculpture Park in Enosburg Falls, Vermont will offer visitors an opportunity to stroll five, rolling meadows on which are sited some fifty large scale sculptures representing selected examples from four decades of work by nationally-known artist, David Stromeyer. Inspired by the rhythms, forms, patterns, and undulations of the Vermont landscape and committed to integrating his sculptures with the landscape, Stromeyer and his wife, Sarah, are welcoming all who wish to experience these works in their quiet, contemplative Cold Hollow setting.

On Saturday, June 28, artist David Stromeyer will lead a tour and talk of the 5 meadows and 50 sculptures that comprise the park. Usually the park is a self-guided affair, so please join us for this special occasion to walk and talk with the artist. All visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy before or after the tour. Tour begins at 1PM and will last approximately one hour.

Wednesday - Saturday: 12 pm - 6 pm, June 25 - October 11 2014
