We have an official partnership with HarborArts over in East Boston to cross promote and share events. They're the other big industrial free public art space in town, and we love what they're doing!
So in the spirit of friendly cooperation, here's a list of the events they have lined up for the summer as part of their season-long exhibition OccupyING the Present. Note that these are NOT AT BARTLETT! HarborArts is at the East Boston Shipyard. It's not as far as you think, so take a day trip and check them out...
