The Cambridge Common has changed over the centuries.
Among other things, it has been a battleground, a bandstand, and a playground. It has been the site of historic public events, as well as events that are more personal and private.  

What memories do you have about the Cambridge Common?
Maybe a memory comes immediately to mind. Perhaps it’s about a person, a protest, or a private moment on a park bench. If you have any memories connected to the Cambridge Common, we ask you to participate! You may choose to remain anonymous but your responses may be made public in the final artwork.

Contribute to an Artwork on the Common
Story contributions will inspire a temporary public artwork that will be exhibited on Cambridge Common from May to September 2017. A related exhibition will also be held at Gallery 344, the home of the Cambridge Arts Council, in the City Hall Annex on 344 Broadway in Cambridge.
