Newton's center of art and culture

In September of 2005, the City of Newton brought many of its arts and culture groups together for the first time in the old Carr School in Newtonville.

The new venture, called the Newton Cultural Center, faces an uncertain future due to the city's expanding elementary school population. But for now, the art, music, and theater groups based there say that it has become a hub of cultural appreciation the likes of which the city has never seen before.

In today's Globe West, a story on the front of the section brings you a day in the life of the new cultural center. Online readers can also experience an audio slide show with interviews, music, and pictures from that day.

The presentation is the second installment of an ongoing series we're calling "A Day in the Life." If case you missed it, you can also go back and check out the first installment, "A Day in the Life of a Park," which ran this summer.
