If you are in Boston’s Fenway area on July 12, make sure to stop by the MassArt Night Market, where rising MassArt senior Jasmine Gonzalez is using art to help adults reconnect with their inner child. 

Located at The Station, visitors can expect lots of playtime in the interactive kitchen, which Gonzalez calls the Cosina del Amor or “Kitchen of Love.” The space, adorned in welcoming pinks and greens, will have toys like hand-painted fruits made in MassArt’s 3D FabLab that can be sliced with a play knife, sinks with marbles, and other make-believes. Some of the effects will be for sale. The exhibit itself will be in place until August 12 during normal business hours at The Station.

When asked about the inspiration for her installation, Gonzalez shared, “When I was growing up, the kitchen was the place I always hung out with my family. One titi [“auntie”] would teach me how to dance. My other titi is a caterer – she’d have us try her desserts. That room was where the warmest, coziest moments happened.”

“I really like the idea of playing adults. When you’re told to act your age, it seems like you have to cut out the things you enjoy to be ‘mature.’ The aim is to bring back some of the security and embrace of childhood fun.”

Part of MassArt’s Creative Economy Business Incubator program, the Night Market is a celebration of creativity and community, showcasing the work of the next generation of artists. Tickets for the Night Market are free and can be found here. Additional Night Markets will take place on Sept. 8 and Oct. 4.
