About M.U.S.C.R.A.T

The city of Somerville, led by the Somerville Arts Council, has bought an old school bus, which has been transformed into a Multi Use Somerville Community Roving Art Transport (M.U.S.C.R.A.T). We anticipate that the inside will be used to conduct roaming art classes, performance art or dance, while the outside could be used to screen films or host concerts. The intent for our M.U.S.C.R.A.T. is to create a flexible roving catalyst for creation.

Artist Jeff McCreight recently transform the bus. A big congrats to RUBICON1 on his amazing work.  Next up are sculptural elements by Bill Turville and Ecco Pierce.

We are looking for creative individuals to create, produce and manage cultural events that will take place in or next to the M.U.S.C.R.A.T. We seek producers who will develop cultural events/performances or public workshops around a certain theme or area in the City.
