Since 2004 the Nave Gallery in Teele Square has been the public face of ARTSomerville, a nonprofit, loosely knit volunteer group of artists and arts enthusiasts with the mutual goal to create new space(s) to present art in Somerville. The Nave has created a number of public music, dance and art events including Project MUM (a dance party under McGrath Highway), 2012's Yarnstorm Perry Park (part of our ongoing Wrap Around Project), and SqueezeBox Slam, an outdoor festival dedicated to accordion and concertina music. 

In 2013, the Nave Gallery added a second exhibition space, the Nave Annex in Davis Square.
