8 PM –12 AM, rain date Saturday, August 26th
Under McGrath Highway Intersection of Washington St. & McGrath O'Brien Highway
Project MUM, a cross between a fifties sock hop and a rave, could only take place in Somerville, a city known for its unique and innovative use of art space. Open to the public, the event features four hours of jammin' DJs, celebrity guest dancers and a unique and unforgettable open-air dance space. Named after the Somerville's first Catholic priest, Christopher McGrath, the area under the highway has been abandoned to pigeons and trash since its construction. On August 25th dancers unite to reclaim the lost highway! Or, more specifically, the space under it. Join this magnificent, moonstruck, mash—a merry, mad, mingled, mania—all under McGrath Highway! Proceeds from this event, produced by ARTSomerville, will support various arts organizations in Somerville.
