Melanie Bernier is an artist working in fibers, music, performance, and aerobics in Cambridge MA. An involvement in underground culture influences her artwork and projects.
We first met her through her ongoing "Thank You For Your Service" series of flags created in response to the 2012 City of Boston Nuisance Ordinance which spurred a rash of underground venue shutdowns in the Allston neighborhood of Boston. The show houses memorialized in this series are but a few of many private residences where live music was hosted, and whose tenants were charged with fees, eviction, or legal action as a result of the ordinance. TYFYS is a thank you to these homes, as well as a goodbye.
