Lynnfield, MA – MarketStreet, the North Shore’s premier neighborhood destination for shopping, dining and entertainment, celebrates its 10th anniversary the entire month of September, after opening in 2013.

The property unveils Mi Casa Your Casa 2.0, a world-renowned interactive art installation, as well as a series of family friendly activities, limited-edition birthday bash swag, and special offers from a number of MarketStreet businesses.

Throughout the past decade, MarketStreet has become the region’s beloved hub for community engagement, fashion, culinary delights, entertainment, wellness, and fitness. Boasting an incredible mix of national retailers, including first to market brands and concepts, and locally owned boutiques and restaurants, the open-air shopping center has consistently evolved, catering to hundreds of thousands of visitors from near and far.

As a testament to its steadfast commitment to the region, MarketStreet also continues to create a nurturing environment for local residents, fostering direct connections with the community and those in need. Through events, fundraisers and lending support for locally based charitable organizations, MarketStreet’s ongoing initiatives embody the spirit of giving back and spreading goodwill.

“We are beyond grateful to all of our businesses and the community, who have each been fundamental in making MarketStreet the community’s gathering place over the past decade. We look forward to the next ten years and beyond, delivering a diverse and vibrant collection of retail and fun-filled calendars of events and unique offerings for all,” said Charlotte Woods, General Manager of MarketStreet.

Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0

As part of MarketStreet’s month-long birthday celebration, Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0, created by Hector Esrawe & Ignacio Cadena with Serge Maheu and presented in collaboration with Creos, makes its exciting North Shore debut at the property. The thrilling interactive art installation is designed to create moments to reflect on the meaning of home and is comprised of eight three-dimensional red frames that illustrate the warmth, comfort, and safety of being at home. The structures encourage a moment of play and togetherness while allowing visitors to look through the walls of adjacent homes, offering a view into their neighbor’s parallel experience. The homes are spaced evenly and stand at nearly ten feet tall, to form a three-dimensional canvas that encourages people of all ages to socialize and play. Each home also features a welcoming, glowing light. When a casa is empty, an inviting white glow invites passersby to enter. Once inside, the glow dims to show that someone is home. Each structure is also complete with a swing, allowing the space to be as playful and interactive as each visitor desires.

Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 was originally inspired by the lively mercados of Latin America where human connections are made every day. The installation has appeared in major cities across the world, dwelling within several museums, as well as on streets and public parks, including Boston’s Seaport Common in 2021. Notably, the installation was repurposed to help create a temporary refuge for families who lost their homes during Mexico’s devastating earthquake in 2017.

“Mi Casa Your Casa is a strong and subtle symbol in a geometric shape that allows us to build a unique iconic piece, one that creates a continuous dialogue with audiences and capable of continuous changes and mutations,” said renowned artist and Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 co-creator, Hector Esrawe.

“We strive to create a home away from home at the property for the surrounding communities. As we looked to celebrate this milestone, we couldn’t think of a better way than with the Mi Casa, Your Casa exhibit,” said Woods.

Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 will be on display at MarketStreet on “The Green” from September 2 through October 2, 2023. All are invited to experience!
