The Center for Arts at the Armory 191 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA02143 In 2009, this nonprofit arts organization moved into the freshly renovated Armory Building on Highland Ave. Conceived as…More space that would "galvanize the creative spirit," they set up studio and live/work space for artists, as well as two galleries and two performance areas: a more intimate café and a larger hall. Concerts, film screenings and happenings like their fall Harvest Fest fill most of the performance calendar. Spoken word, theater and comedy can also be seen here.
