Checking Out CyberArtCentral

The staff took some time on Thursday to look at the terrific space that will house CyberArtCentral, the central headquarters and visitor center for the 2009 Boston Cyberarts Festival. We’re going to be occupying a spacious, light-filled corner storefront on the ground floor of 1330 Boylston Street, a brand-new building run by Samuels & Associates in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston.

CyberArtCentral is the place where Festival-goers can pick up information about the Festival, learn more about specific exhibitions and events, talk to Festival volunteers, and purchase Festival merchandise (wait ‘til you see this year’s t-shirts!). We’re also planning an exhibition in the space of artwork by area digital media art students.

In one of those great coincidences of timing, the first weekend of the Festival coincides with a three-game home stand against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park, right across the street. So we’re pretty sure there will be plenty of people wandering by and checking us out.
