    • Love in Metal: Abraham Megerdichian Machined Metal Miniatures

      Main Library, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      Join us for the first major art exhibit in Cambridge of Abraham Megerdichian's metal miniatures on display at the Main Library from September 19th to October 14th. Lifelong local machinist, Abraham machined from solid scrap metal his interpretations of everyday objects, and gave them away as gifts to family and friends. After Abraham died in 1983 his pieces were put away, where many of them lay until 2013. Since then Abraham’s son, Robert, has had pieces from the collection exhibited at nearly 20 venues in New England and beyond. Also on exhibit are professional photographer Scott Sutherland’s photographs of the artwork. The artwork is on display throughout the Main Library - in the lobby, on the second floor, in the Cambridge Room, and in the Children's Room. Join us for a curator talk by Robert on October 12 at 6:30 pm in the Cambridge Room.
