ABOUT CINEMA SOMERVILLE:
Cinema Somerville is a project of Somerville Media Center. It builds community in Somerville through collaborations with community organizations and residents by curating and presenting free public film screenings at various locations in Somerville.
Now in its 13th year ArtsUnion has been instrumental in reinvigorating the artistic and business landscape of Union Square. ArtsUnion presents numerous events and markets, and leads cultural tours. In addition, ArtsUnion has commissioned temporary art installations, commissioned artisans to fabricate street furniture and has been instrumental in creating zoning incentives for arts-related development in the square. The Somerville Arts Council and the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development created ArtsUnion, in partnership with numerous other local organizations through funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s John and Abigail Adams Program and the City of Somerville.
ArtsUnion is funded by the City of Somerville.
