In Other Eyes

This mixed-media sculpture was created at The Foundry by Wen-hao Tien, a long-time Cambridge artist. Tien captures the nuances of cultures from her multicultural neighbors and in their own handwriting. Does culture color our views? What lens do you look through? This co-creating project is an evolving sculpture. Tien welcomes your participation and can be reached here. For more information about the project, visit Tien's website.

What is the parking situation like?

We don't have designated parking, so your best bet would be finding public parking on the neighboring streets (Third St, Rogers St, Fifth Street). There are also a number of parking garages in the area if you need a longer term solution. We have a loading area if you need to pick up or drop off large objects, but you'll need to find parking after dropping off. See parking options here.
