There’s a new arts space in The Port that feels like the Cambridge of the past: The Lucky Jungle.
Like so many people who seem so at home in Cambridge, founder Cary Sanger is from elsewhere: She grew up on the South Shore of Boston and attended the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She has spent time in California doing animation and digital art for Marvel and Disney. She lived in a treehouse in Miami’s Little Haiti. With a partner, she’s helped create The Lucky Jungle, a Crayola-colored space next to Lamplighter Brewery selling plants and furniture – though the classical music playing on a recent Saturday morning suggested something else. In fact the Lucky Jungle is a community space that wants to create a maker’s space, home for music and a learning space focused on art.
