The new Amazing Things Arts Center held a brief open house at its new location in the Pinefield Shopping Center Saturday, outlining an exciting vision of live concerts in its Saxonville home, to begin this spring.
It was pretty clear that a lot of work needs to be done in order to convert the one-time dry cleaner into a performing arts center with stage, seating for 90 people and office. However, there was an enthusiastic group ready to roll up their sleeves (as well as open their checkbooks) and pitch in!
Many were formerly associated with The Center for the Arts in Natick, including Michael Moran, former executive director who was fired from his post after a dispute with TCAN's board. I don't know any of those details, only that Michael seems to have a lot of enthusiastic backing of some TCAN members -- and that it looks like Saxonville is the unintended but lucky beneficiary of the TCAN split.
Below, see Michael Moran speaking where the stage will be at the new Amazing Things Arts Center.
