The Cambridge Arts Council and Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association is presenting an exhibit, Magazine Beach — A Place Apart, through Feb. 27 at Gallery 344, City Hall Annex, 344 Broadway, second floor. An opening reception will be held Monday, Nov. 17, from 6 to 8 p.m.

In 2015, landscape designs for Magazine Beach, Cambridge’s second-largest park, will be updated and its future cast. Magazine Beach — A Place Apart looks at the history of these 15 acres along the Charles River from a wooded island on a tidal estuary to its current form. It examines the forces that have defined it uses — for gunpowder storage, a river bathing beach, a boathouse for rowers, a storm water sewage treatment plant, and as a swimming, picnicking and recreation destination.

Admission is free. Gallery hours are Monday, 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Tuesday to Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Friday, 8:30 a.m. to noon. For more information, go to www.cambridgeartscouncil.org.
