"Godzilla invading Davis Square in 2053 (as predicted by Anonymous)"


Project website:

"The history of Somerville, 2010-2100" is a community art project that explores what the future might be like. We've been talking to current and former residents; gathering official plans; and collecting think-tank vision statements-- and assembling it all into a history of the future of Somerville.

Visitors to the Nave will be able to see the predictions we received between Feb. 2009 and Dec. 2010--and add their own!

At the reception, we’ll also be hosting Future-aoke. Volunteers can step up to the mic– and share their thoughts about the future. Futurist Seth Itzkan of Planet-Tech Associates will give a short talk; and Adam Schutzman will perform on the theremin.

This project is organized by Tim Devin.

Saturday, Feb. 5, 1 p.m.-9 p.m.
Sunday, Feb. 6, 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
Opening reception, Saturday at 6 p.m.
