    October Somerville Salon: Public space! and public fun!

    From flash mobs to guerrilla art, it seems like creative people have been spending more and more energy trying to liven up public space lately. Join the Somerville Arts Council on October 10th at 7:30pm, as our Somerville Salon series take a look at public space and public fun.

    We'll hear from James Cobalt, who is the director of a local flash mob group called the Boston Societies of Spontaneity. James will talk about how and why Boston SOS began, the challenges of organizing underground events, and the surprising results (not always positive) of some of the 40 flash mobs and events he's organized.

    We'll also hear from Mary Goodman, who has been organizing semi-underground events around town since 2009. Mary will tell us about her 2011 "Wandering Cricket Night Market," which involved people using rented Uhaul trucks as the stage for performances and temporary art installations.

    Presented by the Somerville Arts Council. Organized by Tim Devin.
