Gallery @ SPL Returns with Interactive Exhibit by Jared Katsiane

Gallery @ SPL returns with Southie Then and Now – A Neighborhood Transformed, an interactive video exhibit by award-winning artist Jared Katsiane. An opening reception and community forum is planned for Thursday, May 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Central Library auditorium (79 Highland Ave.).

This exhibit will highlight South Boston’s transformation from a community of working-class families (such as Katsiane’s) into a significantly more gentrified area as the identity of the neighborhood has shifted over the last 50 years. It draws parallels to Somerville’s own evolution during this span, and attendees will be invited to write and draw their own stories and experiences of change on a large canvas.
