Since we launched OUR TOWN in April, we have received some of your stories and we thank you, but we have also received promises from many, many people who said they would be writing their stories and sending them to us – but alas, they have not arrived – and we need your help! TELL US YOUR STORY IN 500 WORDS OR LESS.


If you live or if you work in Cambridge, OUR TOWN is about you! Tell us about your experiences during the Pandemic. How has it impacted you? We are particularly interested in hearing from PARENTS. Whether your kiddos are young or teens – how are you dealing over the summer sans day camp, day-care, child care in general. How do you feel about having the schools re-open? Will you send your child? Tell us what you are thinking using the form provided below. As you know our plan is to take these stories and present them as a play – OUR TOWN. But don’t worry! We are not expecting you to perform in the play – just help us by providing the stories for the script that will become the play. YOU CAN HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN.  DON’T PUT IT OFF!  We look forward to hearing from you! 

In The Gallery - A New Virtual Gallery

Originally from Lima, Perú, Claudia Ruiz Gustafson is a fine art photographer based in Massachusetts. Her work is mainly autobiographical and self-reflective; each image relies on visual codes and symbolism often portraying themes of femininity, memory, dreams and personal mythology. She regards image making as a powerful medium for exploring her own inner world.

Virtual Gallery for Current Exhibit:
Stories of Land and Sea

Virtual Gallery for Past Exhibit:

Cambridge Public Schools K-8 Spring Young Artists Exhibit

What people are saying about the CPS Virtual Gallery:


“Love it! It felt like being there in person. Thank you for helping to share some of the amazing artwork our students are producing.”


“I am a CPS Art Teacher and want to say THANK YOU so much for making the art show live. It was great to share some good news with the artists and their families and have the event continue when everything else is canceled. I love how the display simulates the gallery experience with wide views and close ups. Well done!”


“This is a beautiful presentation. I am in awe of the talent of the students and kudos to the teachers in their interesting proposals for inspiration and medium.”


“Loved it!”


“Great Job creating this.”


“Honestly, I was pretty blown away. This collection changed my assumptions of 'student art' (and I've been to lots of student art shows). All props to the students and their teachers!”


“Really love that you are finding ways to showcase your exhibitions online - especially as a way to engage students who are out of school right now. Thank you!”


“This is a fantastic resource, especially during the Covid crisis. It’s a great way to provide access to wonderful artwork. Thank you!”


“I love it!! Really brings out the art, and the navigation features were cool. Bravo! A good substitute for a live show in these times.”
