Cambridge’s Story Space turns 25
For the past 25 years, Cambridge’s Story Space has created a platform for storytellers of all kinds to share their work to a receptive and respectful audience. “Brother Blue and his wife Ruth started this back in 1992,” says Story Space organizer Mike Cohen. “They created a place where people could come off the street and tell their stories, and there was no place like that before.”
Through Art, Community Raises Money for Refugees
This Saturday, the Cambridge-based gallery became a classroom without walls to tear its students apart, without harsh hands that mold prejudice into their minds or arbitrary labels placed on humans. People of all walks of life gathered for the Arts & Music Fundraiser for Refugee Health and Human Rights.

Cambridge’s Out of the Blue Too sustains artistic community
It’s gray outside in Central Square, but inside a vast space on Massachusetts Avenue the view is dazzling. Brightly hued T-shirts emblazoned with the locally ubiquitous “NOT ART” stencil hang from the ceiling’s acoustic tiles. A hut juts out from one wall; jewelry, paintings, old records, and sweat shirts await browsers. A large dog wanders around, sometimes stopping to get petted. Visitors wander in, intrigued by the vibrancy visible from the street.

SCOUT OUT: Out Of The Blue, Into The New
Central Square has had many a building stand empty for years, 541 Massachusetts Ave. being one of them. The building used to house a Blockbuster Video, but for the last six or seven years it has been vacant, aside from the occasional pop-up. Every once in a while rumors about the location would become the topic of local gossip: At one point it was slated to be the site of the much anticipated return of ManRay, a beloved Central Square nightclub that was replaced by condos in 2005, and, when that fell through, a location of the national pet store chain, PetSmart.
Central Square, Keeping Biz Local at Out of the Blue Gallery
Out of the Blue Gallery, located at 106 Prospect St. in Cambridge’s Area 4, has been a fixture in Cambridge for 17 years. Owned and operated by artist and musician, Tom Tipton, Out of the Blue was originally conceived as a venue for local artists to showcase their pieces. But the art gallery has evolved over time to be much more than “just” a gallery. Tom brings music, art, comedy and poetry, all together, under one roof.
