Project MUM: Meet Under McGrath, a cross between a fifties sock hop and a rave, could only take place in Somerville, a city known for it's innovative ways of bringing art into the public sphere. Open to the public and in support of local arts organizations, the event - a FIRST for Boston - 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! Brought to you by ArtsUnion and ARTSomerville: www.artsomerville.org
