What does "people power" mean to you? What are your aspirations for Allston and how can you shape its future? Reflect on these questions and more this summer at the Crossings Gallery exhibition, A People's History of Allston, by local artist and activist Gustavo Barceloni.


In this community-generated project, Barceloni represents a snapshot of people and their collective power through ceramic art. Over the last year, Barceloni listened as neighbors shared their stories about the challenges and joys of life in Allston, discussed ways to take action on local issues, and guided them to stamp clay slabs as a record of their commitment and concerns. In his studio, Barceloni transformed the slabs into over 30 inspiring and provocative ceramic mugs now on display.
