Additional information

Lifelong local machinist Abraham Megerdichian 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.  This is the first major exhibit in Cambridge of Abraham's artwork and professional photographer Scott Sutherland's photographs of the artwork.  The artwork is on display throughout the Main Library - in the lobby, the connector, the Cambridge Room, and the Children's Room.  Join us for a curator talk by Robert on October 12 at 6:30 pm in the Cambridge Room.
